Italy - Police Arrest Terror Suspect Planning Attack On Milan Synagogue
Milan, Italy - Italian police says they have arrested a Moroccan man on suspicion of plotting an attack against a Milan synagogue.
The LaPresse news agency says the 20-year-old was arrested Thursday morning in the Sardinian city of Cagliari.
Authorities also confiscated a computer they say contains plans for the attack, including details of the synagogue’s security detail and potential access points.
Anti-terrorism investigators identified the suspect — who has lived in Italy from age 6 — from Internet traffic including a Facebook page on how to assemble explosives.
LaPresse said authorities were working with U.S. and British authorities for possible connections in the case.
