Seven arrested in UK, Leaflets threatening PM

London: Leaflets threatening Prime Minister David Cameron and Queen Elizabeth were found by the British police in a car "by chance" leading to the arrest of seven suspects. "The cache was discovered by chance after two Asian men were routinely pulled over by traffic cops," The Sun reported.

They had no insurance and the motor was impounded. It was then searched at a police pound and unnamed sources were quoted as saying that a shotgun, another firearm, ammunition and bomb-making explosives were found. "With the weapons were A4 propaganda leaflets alleged to include threats against Mr Cameron, the Queen and any enemy of Allah," the paper said.

Police arrested three men aged 23, 26 and 27 in Sparkhill, Birmingham, on Tuesday. Three more males, two 22 and one 24, were held a day later in the Moseley and Alum Rock areas of Birmingham and in Smethwick, West Midlands. A 43-year-old man was then held after a raid in Dewsbury, West Yorks, on Thursday, the report said. A source said "Police stumbled on this group they weren`t looking for them. It`s extremely alarming that this was going on three weeks before the Olympics, it said.

The car was seized last Saturday after an English Defence League march in Dewsbury. In a separate incident, a woman was arrested here today on suspicion of terrorism offences as part of an intelligence- led operation in which six persons were held on Thursday, but police said the drill was not linked to the upcoming Olympics in the British capital.
