BRAMPTON, Ont. — RCMP has laid a terror-related charge against an Ontario man initially detained out of fear he might commit a terrorism act.

Kevin Omar Mohamed appeared in court today in Brampton, Ont.

The Crown told court a bail hearing for Mohamed could take up to three days.

Mohamed, 23, was arrested Friday in an unknown location under a controversial law that essentially allows detention without charge.

Police initially charged him with two minor weapons offences related to a hunting knife, but have now also charged him with participation in a terrorist group.

Mohamed's lawyer has said it was not clear what the RCMP believed Mohamed was planning.
