Two Canadians arrested in alleged bomb plot

(Vatican Radio) Police in Canada arrested a man and woman and accused them of attempting to leave pressure cooker bombs at British Columbia's provincial legislature on Canada Day (July 1), when thousands of people were expected to be there. The couple are Canadian-born Muslim converts.
They made a brief court appearance Tuesday and will return July 9 for a bail hearing.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner James Malizia told a news conference there was no evidence or indication to suggest a connection to the deadly Boston Marathon bombings in April, which used bombs made from pressure cookers.
“We detected the threat early and disrupted it,” Malizia said.
