EDMONTON — A 23-year-old woman is accused of a terrorism hoax after the Canadian Forces received an e-mailed threat warning of an impending attack, police say.

Canadian Forces in Toronto received the e-mail, which said an Edmonton man was going to commit an act of terror on April 17, the RCMP said.

The Mounties followed up and determined it was nothing but a hoax.

Hanna Bedhiafi is charged with committing a hoax regarding terrorist activity.

She was released on a promise to appear in court. Her next court appearance is scheduled for May 9.
