In a developing story, Canadian police and intelligence agencies are expected to announce later today they have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack that may have included targets in New York.

Two suspects have been arrested in Montreal and Toronto.

The alleged plotters have been under police surveillance for more than a year in Quebec and southern Ontario, according to Canada’s CBC News. The investigation is part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Law enforcement officials say the terror suspects arrested today have no connection to the two brothers accused of last week’s Boston Marathon bombings.

Several prominent Muslim community leaders were invited to a background briefing this afternoon, the National Post reported. Canadian authorities have recently started making a point to brief community leaders before announcing terror arrests.

A news conference near Toronto’s Pearson airport is expected to follow the briefing.
