3 Arrested In Britain For Planned Public Beheadings

Three terrorism suspects in Britain were allegedly involved in a plot to behead a member of the public ‘imminently’ when they were arrested. The men, who range in age 19 to 27, were arrested three days before Remembrance Sunday, an event that takes place just west of London.

During a preliminary court hearing, none applied for bail. Scotland Yard says the individuals have been formally charged with preparing to commit acts of terrorism.
