Italy arrests 4 suspected militants

italy-arrest-terrorist-suspects.siItalian police yesterday arrested four of six men they suspect are members of a militant cell which was planning attacks in the US, Israel and Italy, though no specific targets were named by police.

The men aimed to train militants and send them abroad, paramilitary police said, and are suspected of conspiracy to commit international terrorism and inciting racial hatred.

They were arrested in Andria in the southern Italian region of Puglia, where police say the group was based, and in Milan, Brussels and Catania, Sicily, and include a Tunisian, police said.

Italian police are still looking for two other Tunisian men who they believe have returned to their home country. No international arrest warrant has been issued for them.
