Canadian man convicted of al-Qaida ties in North Africa returns to Canada


 

OTTAWA – A London, Ont., man jailed in North Africa for his alleged links to a terrorist group has returned to Canada.

While not referring to Aaron Yoon directly, the RCMP said Friday it was aware that a Canadian who had been jailed in Mauritania has returned home.

Yoon reportedly arrived in Toronto on Friday afternoon aboard an Air Canada flight.

The Mounties would not say whether Yoon was escorted by any of their officers.

Yoon was arrested in the Mauritania in December 2011 and sentenced to 18 months behind bars after being convicted of having ties to an al-Qaida-affiliated group.

He was released from prison there on Tuesday.

  1. Canada should be hard on such peopel and not give them a great time in prison. Many other peopel with the ssame belief will join the ranks of terrorism and they would know that end of the day they if got caught the Canadian govt. will rescue them and they will be brought to a nice clean prison with much more amenities than they could dream in their homes.
