Canadian authorities released an Egyptian citizen suspected of belonging to a terrorist organization affiliated with Al Qaida, sources said late Friday night. The suspect was sentenced to partial house arrest, only authorized to leave his home during certain hours of the day and ordered to wear an electronic security bracelet. A federal court said that the suspect presented a large enough national security threat that he mustn't be allowed to travel freely. Nonetheless, the court ordered that he would not be deported to Egypt.
