RCMP charge 2 Ottawa men with terrorism offences

RCMP have arrested two men from Ottawa — Ashton Carleton Larmond and Carlos Larmond — on several terrorism-related offences, including one charge of trying to leave Canada to "participate in terrorist activity abroad."

The two men, apparently twin brothers, each face multiple charges.

Carlos Larmond was arrested at Montreal’s Trudeau airport as he was "intending to travel overseas for terrorist purposes," RCMP said in a release.

Ashton Carleton Larmond was arrested in Ottawa, RCMP said.

Investigators were not immediately available to comment on the arrests.
