    MONTREAL -- Police say there’s a link between the seizure of explosives several hundred kilometres northeast of Quebec City and the evacuation of several homes in Montreal today. A school was also locked down as police carried out a search warrant in a nearby apartment building. Provincial police spokesman Claude Ross says three people were arrested and one ton of explosives was found in a van in Mont Joli, about 350 kilometres east of Quebec City. He says the vehicle was intercepted by police outside a doughnut shop, adding that the explosives were stolen from a local contractor.

    The explosives stolen from a West Side storage area were powerful enough to have blown shrapnel more than a half-mile along the highways the thieves drove after stealing the material, a federal agent testified Wednesday. None of the suspects apparently had any training in dealing with explosives, said agent Gary Ainsworth of the BATF. When recovered, he said, the explosives and detonators were packed together— a distinctly bad idea with things that go bang. An air unit helped locate the metal shed where the stolen magazines— steel boxes with wooden interiors made specifically for explosives— were being stored. According to...
