An Ottawa man arrested in a terrorism probe last month was hit with a new charge Tuesday involving explosives.

Misbahuddin Ahmed, a hospital X-ray technician who is scheduled to appear in court for a bail hearing Wednesday, had initially been charged with being part of a general conspiracy. On Tuesday, prosecutors added a new charge, alleging he handled explosive devices to further the plot.

Police have said they seized more than 50 homemade circuit-board detonators in the course of the RCMP’s Project Samossa investigation. They arrested three men, all Canadian citizens. They are not alleged to have gotten far enough to have assembled a working bomb.

The lead suspect remains Hiva Alizadeh, who until Tuesday had been the only accused to have faced allegations of bomb building.

A third suspect, Dr. Khurram Sher, continues to face a charge that he was only part of the general conspiracy.

It’s alleged that the three men met at Mr. Ahmed’s Ottawa home and plotted terror prior to the Aug. 26 police bust. Sources allege he was elected the nominal leader at the meeting, as Mr. Alizadeh planned to travel overseas to join insurgent groups operating in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

Police claim to have extensive surveillance evidence of the alleged terror conspiracy.

This evidence is to be discussed at the Wednesday bail hearing in Ottawa for Mr. Ahmed, but it’s anticipated a publication ban will be imposed to protect the fair-trial rights of the three accused.
