A suicide attack in Paris has been apparently headed off. From Reuters, with thanks to Nicolei:
On Monday, Italian police arrested Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed, known as “Mohamed the Egyptian” and suspected of playing a lead role in the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people in March. A second man was arrested as part of the raid.
Belgian police, acting on information from Italy, then arrested 15 people they said were preparing for an attack.
The warrant, used to detain Ahmed and the other suspect in Milan, quotes members of the group as saying they planned a rehearsal of an attack in Paris using mobile phone technology. The Milan prosecutor’s office said the method was similar to that used in the Madrid bombings.
