Toronto 18 leader faces sentencing

Fahim Ahmad said he would “cut off” heads in Parliament


The 26 year-old head of a foiled plot to bomb targets in Toronto and Ottawa will be sentenced Monday in a Brampton Court. Fahim Ahmad has already plead guilty to participating in a terrorist group, importing firearms and holding training camps to instruct his followers on how to assault targets like Parliament, the Canadian Broadcasting Centre and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service headquarters. The Crown is asking that he be sentenced to 18 years to life, while the defense is requesting a 12 year sentence. Thirteen adults, seven of whom have plead guilty, and five youths have been detained since 2006 in connection with the case.
