Italy arrests Afghan suspected of plotting attacks

Italian police on Tuesday arrested an Afghan suspected of plotting attacks in Italy, Britain and France after finding incriminating evidence on his mobile phone. A second Afghan has been arrested for alleged people trafficking while warrants have been issued for three other people, two Afghans and a Pakistani man, police said.

The investigation began in December after four Afghans were spotted taking videos inside a shopping centre in Bari in southern Italy, and a police search of their phones uncovered other images of the city’s airport and port, as well as sites in Rome, Paris and London.

Police said the investigation would continue, with Rossi suggesting it was “likely” the wanted men had returned to Afghanistan and Pakistan, but could also be in other European countries.
