Significant Terror Arrests Made in Birmingham on Sunday in 'Biggest Counter-Terrorism' Op in U.K. So Far in 2011
Seven people were arrested in Birmingham over the weekend, in what has been called the biggest counter-terrorism operation in the U.K. this year. The bust was made Sunday night, and police are now searching the suspects' homes and at least one business.
The six men and one woman are believed to be of Arab descent and reportedly have ties to Al Qaeda.
