Five Men Arrested For Suspected Terrorism In Britain, In Advance of Pope's Visit

"None of the men are British." American Tea Partiers, then, according to Mayor Bloomberg's axiom.

In a statement from Scotland Yard, the Metropolitan Police said that the five men had been arrested in a Terrorism Act 2000 operation, launched by officers from the force's Counter-Terrorism Command.

The five were arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

They are 26, 27, 36, 40 and 50 years old and most are understood to be Algerian. Following the arrests, police began searches as the depot and at homes in north and east London. Officers have not found any hazardous items.

Out: Koran burning

In: Pope burning

Thanks to Dr. Spank.
