Italy arrests man over Milan synagogue ‘plot’

| March 15, 2012

A man aged 20 has been arrested in northern Italy on suspicion of plotting an attack on a synagogue in Milan.

The suspect, described as Moroccan-born, was said to have had details of the synagogue and plans for an attack on his computer.

Police in London said a 40-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of collecting information useful to terrorism.

Scotland Yard said they were liaising with the Italian authorities.

Although the woman arrested in London is not thought to have been involved in the Milan plot, she is believed to have been in touch with the 20-year-old suspect.

Italian Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri said that the matter was being treated "very seriously", although there was no terror alert in particular.
