Fourth terror suspect released on bail and promptly re-arrested

20-year-old Ottawa man facing assault, threat charges

A 20-year-old man who was arrested Friday in connection with an ongoing investigation into an alleged terror cell and charged with assault and uttering a threat was immediately re-arrested after being granted bail. Awso Peshdary will face a new threat charge after his second arrest by the Ottawa Police some 10 minutes after he was released on the first set of charges. The three other suspects—Hiva Alizadeh, 30, and Misbahuddin Ahmed, 26, of Ottawa and London, Ont.-based Khurram Syed Sher, 28—appeared in court earlier to face a variety of terrorism charges, including conspiring with international terrorist groups.
