'plotting to cause Christmas shopping carnage'

by Stephen Wright

Christmas shoppers and partygoers are feared to have been the target of 12 men who were arrested by anti-terror police early yesterday. The suspects, aged between 17 and 28, are accused of preparing Al Qaeda-inspired attacks on ‘mass casualty’ targets such as shopping malls and nightclubs. They were taken into custody after more than 150 officers from four forces swooped on homes in London, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and Cardiff at 5am. Senior security sources described the arrests as ‘hugely significant’.
