TORONTO — CBC News is reporting that Canadian police and intelligence agencies have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack.

Sources tell the network that a number of suspects were arrested this morning in Ontario and Quebec.

The report says the alleged plotters have been under surveillance for more than a year.

CBC News says the investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The RCMP is expected to provide more information at a news conference at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday.


Law enforcement officials tell CBC News that the latest arrests are not connected to the Boston Marathon bombings.
