Al-Qaeda terror plot: searches continue over alleged plan to bomb Easter shoppers

Eleven Pakistani nationals and one UK-born Briton were still being questioned at various locations in the UK in connection with the alleged plot.

The men, ten of whom hold student visas, can be detained for up to 28 days.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Twelve suspects remain in custody in various locations across the country.

“A further address on Highgate Street, Liverpool, is also being searched, bringing the total number of addresses being searched to ten.”

The police statement came as Downing Street revealed that Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, had spoken with the President of Pakistan about the threat from terrorism.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “The President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Gordon Brown spoke by telephone last night.

“They agreed that the UK and Pakistan share a serious threat from terrorism and violent extremism, and committed to work together to address this common challenge.”

Mr Brown said: “We know that there are links between terrorists in Britain and terrorists in Pakistan. That is an important issue for us to follow through and that’s why I will be talking to President Zardari about what Pakistan can do to help us in the future.”

Sources told The Daily Telegraph that the arrests of 12 men in the north west of England on Wednesday were linked to a suspected plan to launch a devastating attack this weekend.

Some of the suspects were watched by MI5 agents as they filmed themselves outside the Trafford Centre on the edge of Manchester, the Arndale Centre in the city centre, and the nearby St Ann’s Square.

Police were forced to round up the alleged plotters after they were overheard discussing dates, understood to include the Easter bank holiday, one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

“It could have been the next few days and they were talking about 10 days at the outside,” one source said. “We had to act.” Police are now engaged in a search for an alleged bomb factory, where explosives might have been assembled.

If such a plot was carried out, it would almost certainly have been Britain’s worst terrorist attack, with the potential to cause more deaths than the suicide attacks of July 7, 2005, when 52 people were murdered.

A plan to arrest the suspects in a series of co-ordinated raids yesterday morning had to be hastily brought forward to Wednesday afternoon after the country’s most senior anti-terrorism officer, Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick, of the Metropolitan Police, was photographed going into Downing Street carrying a briefing paper with top secret details of Operation Pathway in full view.

Mr Quick resigned after he was told by the Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, that he had lost her confidence and that of MI5.

As a result of his blunder, hundreds of police officers had to be scrambled to arrest the suspects, who were being monitored round the clock.

I need to explain this bit of Max Sennett, Keystone Cops “cock up” as the Brits might say.
Mr. Quick went to Downing Street and as he exited the car, he was photographed as people are who pay a call or are on official business. Nothing odd about that, except THIS ONE TIME.  The commish was carrying TOP SECRET papers that had to do with this case, loose.  That is, they were not concealed as in a brief case or a folder.  Just a bunch of papers with the very most secret right on top.
Now then, the camera caught that top secret page with names and MI5 plans etc.  While the plans weren’t published once seen as what they were, the police had to act sooner then they might have due to fear of exposure to the terrorists of those plans.  Which I think might be one reason why they are still looking for the bomb factory itself.
A photo of the commissioner with the papers was published but the sensitive parts were blurred out.
FINALLY ..... to end this tale with a groan from the Brit taxpayer.  The commissioner has resigned, as what else could he do? However,
starting at once his pension starts and it’s over $100,000 a year.  Well, I suppose he is entitled to a pension as he was working for the agency for a long time and at retirement one does get “pensioned off.” But that was a heck of a careless thing for a man in his position to do.

Now back to our regularly sched. program. 

Former police chiefs pointed out that rounding up suspected suicide bombers in public places in Liverpool, Manchester and Clitheroe, Lancs, had put other people at risk and could also have compromised the operation.

All but one of the men arrested were Pakistani nationals who came to Britain on student visas. This suggested a possible new tactic by al-Qaeda, which had previously used British-based extremists who travelled to Pakistan for trainin
g.

The issue of student visas represents a potential security nightmare for the police and MI5. There are 330,000 foreign students in Britain and around 10,000 such visas are issued every year to Pakistanis alone.

Phil Woolas, the Immigration Minister, has described the student visa system as “the major loophole in Britain’s border controls”.

Several of the suspects who were being questioned last night, were from the al-Qaeda heartlands in Pakistan’s border area with Afghanistan.

Peter Fahy, chief constable of Greater Manchester, said police had been forced to act to protect the public. Asked about al-Qaeda involvement, he added: “We know what is the nature of the threat to this country and where it comes from.”

But he sought to reassure shoppers, and added: “I would like to say I would have no hesitation, or any of my family, in using any of those locations that have been mentioned.”

The security services suspect that several of the men arrested were trained at religious schools in Pakistan and sent to launch suicide attacks on the West.


They were suspected to have chosen Easter as the most significant Christian holiday for an attack.

Police believe the suspects may have smuggled bomb-making equipment into the country and were ready to launch their attacks.

Sources said police had arrested the man they suspected was the ring-leader, Abid Naseer, 22, at an address in Galsworthy Avenue in Cheetham Hill, Manchester.

He is said to be from the tribal areas of Pakistan where the Taliban and al-Qaeda have established their base.

The alleged members of the cell had signed up for a range of student courses, while two were employed as security guards at a new Homebase store in Clitheroe, Lancs.

Among the locations raided on Wednesday afternoon was the Cyber Net Café in Cheetham Hill, where it is thought the men communicated using emails.

Security sources suspect they received their instructions from al-Qaeda commanders in Pakistan.

The leader of the Pakistan Taliban is Baitullah Mehsud, who last week claimed responsibility for an attack on a police compound in Lahore and promised to attack the West. At least one of the arrested men is from Mehsud’s heartland of South Waziristan, sources in Pakistan said.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
