UK police arrest 9 in Anti-Terror Raid

Nine people have been arrested in the UK in a major counter terrorism operation led by police and security services. Several addresses in the Birmingham area were raided before dawn on Wednesday. A ninth man was arrested later near the city.

The suspects have been detained under the terrorism act.

Security sources say they believe the men were planning a kidnap plot.

Local muslim leaders have appealed to their communities to support the police.
