Canadian court convicted remaining 'Toronto 18' terror suspects
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On June 23, 2010, a jury in the Ontario Superior Court convicted the final two members of the "Toronto 18" for their roles in a 2006 terror plot. The Toronto 18 were arrested in 2006 after police learned of their plans to bomb sites throughout Ontario using fertilizer explosives in response to Canada's military involvement in Afghanistan. The jury found Asad Ansari and Steven Vikash Chand guilty of "participation in a terrorist group." Chand was also found guilty of "counseling to commit fraud over $5,000 for the benefit of a terrorist group," after attempting to take out fraudulent bank loans in order to support the group.
