12 men arrested over suspected UK terrorism plot

LONDON (AP) - British police say 12 men arrested in early morning raids on three cities will be questioned about a suspected UK terrorism plot.

Britain's lead officer for counterterrorism says the arrests were necessary to ensure public safety. He did not disclose details of the alleged plot.

He says the suspects were detained in London, in the central English city of Stoke-on-Trent and also in Cardiff, Wales.

Authorities say the arrests followed a large scale, pre-planned operation using officers from several different cities.
