Trial of accused terrorists gets first look at pressure cookers lined with nails

VANCOUVER - A B.C. Supreme Court jury has had a firsthand look inside a pair of pressure cookers that were allegedly made into bombs and left to detonate outside the provincial legislature.A sheriff carrying the devices walked slowly along the jury bench while the 14 grim-faced jury members peered into the stainless steel containers, which were still lined with nails.John Nuttall and Amanda Korody are on trial for allegedly plotting to set off the devices on the legislature grounds on Canada Day 2013.On Monday, the trial was shown video taken by undercover officers and CCTV cameras of the accused terrorists stashing bags allegedly containing the pressure-cooker bombs on either side of the legislature building.Nuttall and Korody's arrest was the result of a months-long RCMP sting operation.The pair have pleaded not guilty to four terrorism-related charges.
