Five Men of ‘Arabic Origin’ Arrested in Plot to Kill the Pope

Via Fox News:
Developing: Five men were arrested Friday by British police over a potential threat to Pope Benedict XVI on the second day of his four-day visit to the U.K. Police confirmed the arrests in a statement Friday, which revealed the men were detained by Scotland Yard detectives about 5.45am local time “on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.” The statement continued: “The men are aged 26, 27, 36, 40, and 50, and were arrested … at [a] business premises in central London.” The men — reported to be of Arabic origin by Sky News — were taken to a central London police station to be interviewed by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Counter Terrorism Command.
