British Muslim beheading plot foiled

Sky News reports that a total of nine British Muslims have now been arrested in a plot to kidnap a British soldier who is a Muslim and has fought in Afghanistgan, and “post a video of the hostage being tortured and killed on the internet.” The suspects are said to be of “Pakistani origin.” A police spokesman who gave a press interview a little while ago said, “We are in the foothills of a very major investigation.” Sky News says that the suspects have been under investigation for approximately six months, and that the authorities acted because the kidnap plot was believed to be “coming to fruition.”
