Teen labelled as high risk for terrorism

A provincial court judge has tightened restrictions on a Kamloops, B.C., teenager labelled by the RCMP as a high risk to commit targeted acts of violence and terrorism.

The court heard that Mounties searched the 17-year-old boy's home earlier this year and found documents about bomb making, interrogation and torturing techniques and Canadian links to al-Qaida.

The youth, who can't be named under a publication ban, was in court Monday after he pleaded guilty to assaulting a social worker last month and breaching probation.

He is already serving a three-year probation order for a conviction of arson and break and enter last year.

Judge Chris Cleaveley sentenced the teen to 20 days in custody and 10 days of community supervision for the recent charges, and then tightened the teen's probation conditions after hearing about the materials Mounties found in his home.

The conditions include a ban on Internet access and on any written materials related to terrorist activities.
