Hi, I'm Zakaria Amara amara1amara1amara1

Age: 20

Address: Periwinkle Crescent, Mississauga, Ontario

• I, along with Fahim (Ahmad) have been ID'd as a “Leader” of plot

• I moved into my mother-in-law's Mississauga, Ont., home last week where I planned to live with my wife and our eight-month-old daughter. My wife told the Globe I was going to school and working in a gas station.

• I write poetry. Really embarrassingly awful and unintentionally funny poetry. You can read some here and here and here

• Another one of our group, Ahmad Mustafa Ghany is my brother in law (married to my wife's sister).

• I became friends with Fahim Ahmad and Saad Khalid at Mississauga's Meadowvale Secondary School

• At the time I was arrested, I had obtained a fully functional remote triggering device and he was actively seeking ways to obtain nitric acid to be used as a triggering device for the ammonium nitrate. Turns out the cops already knew about it b/c they secretly searched my pad. HEY! That's, um, ....sneaky!

Shareef (Abdelhaleen) was helping me collect the bomb-making ingredients and find a secure place to store the chemicals and other material. It was Shareef who paid an undercover police officer the $2,000 down payment for the chemicals, after obtaining the money from me.

• I and Fahim and Asad (Ansari) and Shareef (Abdelhaleem) and Qayyum (Abdul) and Saad Saad (Khalid) are charged with the bomb plot

• All of us are charged with participating or contributing to a terrorist group

• Here's my profile from the Toronto Star
