By Julie Gordon VANCOUVER (Reuters) - A Canadian judge freed a couple found guilty of planting homemade bombs at a crowded Canada Day holiday party in 2013, saying on Friday the "unsophisticated" pair were entrapped by police who themselves broke the law in their sting operation.

Earlier on Friday, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce ruled the RCMP manipulated the "unsophisticated" couple into carrying out a plot, saying that they did not have the mental capacity to plan on their own.
