Terror Suspect Wanted to Behead Prime Minister


Batasar said he was given an eight-page synopsis of the allegations, including storming Parliament, blowing up some of the buildings and taking politicians hostage to demand the withdrawal of Canadian troops in Afghanistan. If the demands were not met, it is alleged, Chand wanted to behead Stephen Harper.

He said his client is also accused of being part of a plan to take over the CBC building in Toronto.
