Canadian intelligence officials confirmed Thursday that authorities busted up a small suspected terrorist cell in Toronto, including an Algerian man they allege was an explosives expert trained by al-Qaida. Four Algerian men who had applied for refugee status in Canada were alleged members of the Salafist Group for Call and Combat, an Islamic group with ties to al-Qaida, which is banned in Canada and Algeria. Barbara Campion, a spokeswoman for Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said the cell was dismantled by CSIS counter terrorism and Canada Border Services Agency agents, working with police. "We've said publicly that there's a number of terrorist groups that are active on Canadian soil," Campion said, adding she could not reveal the men's names, or details of their activities.
