Moroccans Arrested With Explosives And a Map of London
Italy’s National Security Committee is reviewing security at sensitive sites, amid fears that five Moroccans arrested this week were planning terrorist attacks. The men, detained for illegal possession of explosives, are suspected of having links to extremist groups elsewhere in Europe. Police found maps with Nato bases in northern Italy ringed and a plan of central London during the arrests south of Venice. Italian authorities are now considering how best to secure their military sites, as well as prominent historical sites such as the leaning tower of Pisa. The arrest of the five suspects was approved by the investigating judge and they have now been remanded in custody, say reports.
