A terror plot by two men living in Canada targeting a Canadian train announced yesterday by the Canadian police who received a tip from a Canadian imam could have, it turns out, killed a lot of New Yorkers. That’s because the two alleged conspirators were eyeing Amtrak’s Maple Leaf train, which starts its trip in Penn Station before traveling up to Albany, across western New York, and into Toronto (here’s a map of the route). According to the Post, the plan was to blow up the train as it “crossed a bridge near Niagara Falls.”
If you’re keeping score at home, that’s potentially two terror attacks on New Yorkers that have been foiled in the past few days.
This post originally referred to the suspects as “Canadian men,” but they are not citizens of Canada.
