The Mounties have charged three Ottawa men, including one who may already be dead, with terror-related offences.
All face charges of conspiring to participate or to contribute in an activity of a terrorist group, while 25-year old Awso Peshdary (on right) has been charged with participation in the activity of a terrorist group and facilitating an activity for a terrorist group.
23-year old Khadar Khalib (on left) has been charged with leaving the country to participate in the activites of a terrorist group, and with counseling a person to participate in an activity of a terrorist group.
24-year old John Maguire (centre) is also charged with facilitating an activity for a terrorist group.
He appeared in a recruiting video last year urging Muslims to launch attacks against Canadians.
The RCMP acknowledge recent reports indicating Maguire has been killed in Syria, but say they have no ”conclusive evidence confirming that,” and must assume he’s alive.
