      INDEFINITE JAILING OF 6 IN CANADA TESTS LEGAL SYSTEM

      For a long time, Mona el-Fouli lied to her young children. Their
      father was working, she told them at first. He was on a trip, she
      said later. But when she took her boys, 5 and 7, to see their father
      behind a glass partition, they knew he was in jail.

      "Please mom, can I break this glass and go inside to play with my
      dad?" pleaded the 7-year-old, she recounted.

      For 41/2 years, el-Fouli's husband, Mohammed Zeki Mahjoub, has been
      imprisoned in Toronto without being charged, without facing trial,
      and without being fully told what evidence is being used to keep him
      there. The government has said he is a potential terrorist. His wife
      and defenders say the authorities should prove it or let him go.

      Mahjoub is one of six men being held in Canada as security risks on
      secret evidence. In a country that boasts of its tolerance and
      respect for legal rights, the jailings present an awkward dilemma
      for judges, lawmakers and some members of the public...
