A second suspect has pleaded guilty to a terrorism charge in relation to the 2006 terror plot in Canada's Toronto where 18 people were arrested.

Ali Mohamed Dirie, 26, pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of participating in the activities of a terrorist group, said the Public Prosecution Service of Canada Tuesday in a statement.

The group had planned to detonate prominent landmarks in Canada's largest city, including the Toronto Stock Exchange and the headquarters of Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, Canada's spy agency.

A total of 18 men and young boys were arrested in 2006 in separate police raids. Seventeen of them were later charged, becoming the first group of people to be charged under Canada's terrorism law.

Dirie is the second adult to plead guilty after Saad Khalid, who pleaded guilty last year to one count of participating in a militant plot with the intention of causing an explosion. He was sentenced earlier in September to 14 years in prison.

This group has been labelled as the first "native terrorism group" in Canada. Their intention was to force Canadian troops to withdraw from Afghanistan.
