Pakistani Men Cleared of Having Bomb-Making Materials

Niagara Falls, NY – Canadian officials have confirmed that two men of Pakistani descent, who were detained at the Rainbow Bridge Friday, carried no bomb-making materials.

Bridge inspectors found the men possessing wire cutters and a white powder that was tested and found to be non-toxic.

The men are being held until their immigration status can be determined. No charges have been filed.
