Five Men Arrested in UK Over Potential Threat to Pope

Published September 17, 2010

| Associated Press


Pope Benedict XVI, right, attends a Service of Prayer at St Mary's University College Chapel at Twickenham, London Friday Sept. 17, 2010. Thousands of cheering Catholic schoolchildren feted Pope Benedict XVI on his second day in Britain on Friday, offering a boisterous welcome even as the pontiff urged their teachers to make sure to provide a trusting, safe environment.

Developing: British police arrested five London street cleaners over an alleged threat to Pope Benedict XVI on Friday, the second day of a papal trip to Britain that has brought both a warm welcome from Catholics and renewed anger over the clerical sex abuse scandal.

The Vatican said the pope was calm despite the pre-dawn arrests and planned no changes to his schedule.

Acting on a tip, police detained the men, aged 26 to 50, under the Terrorism Act at a cleaning depot in central London after receiving information about a possible threat. The men are being questioned at a London police station and have not been charged. Police said an initial search of that business and other related properties has not uncovered any hazardous items.

The pope's visit has divided opinion in officially Protestant, highly secular Britain. The trip has been overshadowed by disgust over the Catholic Church's clerical abuse scandal and opposition from secularists and those opposed to the church's stances against homosexuality and using condoms to fight AIDS.

The detained suspects worked for a contractor on behalf of Westminster Council, the authority responsible for much of central London. The pope will still address British politicians, businessmen and cultural leaders in Westminster Hall, part of the Houses of Parliament, later Friday.

The depot were the men were arrested is responsible for cleaning another part of London that the pope is not due to visit, police said.

Police confirmed that some of the men were thought to be from outside Britain but declined to comment on press reports they were of Algerian origin.

Veolia Environmental Services, the cleaners' company, had no immediate comment on the arrests.

There was no indication the arrests involved a threat to national security. Protesters and activists have previously been arrested under the country's terrorism laws during high-profile events such as economic summits and state visits.

The pope's security on this trip has been visibly higher than on previous foreign trips, and Vatican officials have acknowledged that Britain represents a higher security threat than the other European countries Benedict has visited this year, including Portugal, Malta and Cyprus.

News of the arrests came as the pope was meeting representatives of other religions, including Muslims and Jews, and stressing the need for mutual respect, tolerance and freedom.

The Vatican said the pope was informed of the arrests and was pleased he could stick to his schedule.

let's not jump the gun and make a false accusation.  it's better to wait until we have more information since muslims are not the only people who do evil things.

It's already been reported that the men arrested are Muslim terrorists.

Yes, and George Bush did it.

devotedknuckles and Petertherock, your media conditioning is showing. There is such a thing as real terrorism. There is also such a thing a staged government terrorism. Please watch Terror Storm.

While it's foolish to blame everything on the Western governments' spy agencies, it's equally foolish to disbelieve that the hand of official potentates is entirely absent from some terrorist attacks. We know the CIA has produced fake bin Laden tapes, we know the United States was caught shipping Taliban fighters into Iraq, we know that last year's failed Christmas Day attack was staged. Be aware of how things really are.
Yes, Muslims. Shocking!

You're welcome. I hope you enjoy the documentary.

What are you trying to say here? I can't understand what this means.

Quote:it's good te know the north had no terrorism, if it wasn't for your vid I'd still haven't a clue

Why the sarcasm? If you have nothing constructive to say, say nothing. I never said anything about the specific story with the pope.

No, I'm still a Catholic. Yet because I generally ask probing questions, and because there are a high number of threads on Islam or related subjects, some folk have declared me part of the Ummah. Interestingly, there are not a few people on this site who sincerely believe that I am an atheist.
