More on the latest foiled British jihad plot. “Source: British Beheading Plot Was ‘Days Away,'” by Brian Ross and Alexis Debat at the ABC News blog :
A plot to kidnap and behead a British soldier on videotape was only “days away” and led to the arrests today of nine men in Birmingham, England, a Scotland Yard source tells ABC News.
Most of the nine men are described as British citizens of Pakistani descent who are being held under Britain’s new anti-terror laws.
A British intelligence source tells ABC News that a British soldier had already been selected as the victim, based on instructions the men allegedly received by e-mail from “outside the country.”
