Youth accused in Kingston, Ont., terrorism case rearrested on new charges

KINGSTON, Ont. — A 16-year-old boy previously arrested in eastern Ontario over an alleged terrorism plot is now facing new charges.

Police in Kingston, Ont., say the boy, whose name is protected by a publication ban, was rearrested on Sunday.

They declined to say what led to his arrest, but confirmed he’s now charged with one count each of mischief and breach of bail conditions.

The teen, who was first arrested in January, was released from custody earlier this month under a number of strict bail conditions.

These included promises to be in the company of one of two family members at all times, stay off the internet other than for pre-approved educational purposes, and wear an electronic monitoring device issued by the RCMP.

The teen was previously facing five charges related to allegations that he had hatched a terrorist plot, but had yet to choose a target.
