Canada Border Services officials are travelling to Kamloops, to speak to four people after a possible security breach at the Canada/U.S. border south of Vancouver.
Kamloops RCMP say two Palestinian men were arrested early Tuesday evening on the outskirts of the southern Interior city.
Mounties say the men were found in a car that was stopped on the Coquihalla Highway with its four-way flashers activated, about 350 kilometres northeast of Vancouver.
Two Canadians in the car were also taken into custody.
According to police, they face charges of aiding and abetting.
Investigators say there is no word yet about how or when the Palestinian men crossed the border into Canada or why they were allegedly in the country illegally. (CHNL)
