Canada suspects challenge 'train plot'
Two suspects in an alleged al-Qaeda-backed plot to derail a Canadian passenger train have challenged the case against them.
In a Montreal court, Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, said the case against him was based only on "appearances".
Speaking in Toronto, John Norris, a lawyer for 35-year-old Raed Jaser, said his client would "defend these serious charges''.
''He is in a state of shock and disbelief,'' Mr Norris told reporters.
