A note, in case members have not seen it on the news. Yesterday in England, eleven suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists were held by the excellent British police, in co-ordinated raids in the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, also the town of Clitheroe, all in Lancashire in the north of England - approximately 200 miles north of London. The suspects had been under surveillance for several weeks by MI5. The group is thought to have been plotting a major attack in Britain. The so-called "mastermind" (for want of a better word that I can think of!) of the group was believed to be Rashid Rauf, an Al-Qaeda suspect who was implicated in several other plots. He was reported to have been killed in a United States drone attack in Pakistan last year, but there are now doubts about the veracity of his death. The eleven arrested are all Pakistanis. Ready everybody: Three Cheers for The British Police! And three cheers for the United States drone attack - even if it might have missed Mr. Rauf, it certainly will have got some of the B's.
