ITALIAN police have arrested two men accused of planning terror attacks in the UK and Italy.
The Afghan suspects are alleged to have been plotting strikes on targets in London, including restaurants, hotels and a pedestrian footbridge near Canary Wharf in the east of the capital.
Rome’s Coliseum and Circus Maximus, the ancient chariot racing stadium and a venue for modern-day concerts, are also said to have featured on their list.
Hakim Nasiri, 23, and Gulistan Ahmadzai, 29, were arrested in the southern Italian city of Bari this morning.
Nasiri, whose address was given as a refugee reception centre near the airport in Bari, was detained on charges relating to terrorism. He was granted international protection on May 6. Related articles
Nasiri is believed to have been preparing attacks on high-profile targets including “airports, ports, police vehicles, shopping centres, hotels as well as other unspecified terrorist attacks in Italy and Britain,” police documents said.
Ahmadzai, from the nearby village of Borgo Libertà, is being held on charges of aiding illegal immigration by smuggling migrants into Italy from Afghanistan and Pakistan and helping them travel towards the UK via France.
The men are said to have downloaded Islamist propaganda on their mobile phones, including photos of Taliban fighters and wounded American soldiers.
