Alleged Terror Group Targeted British Rabbis, Shuls

An alleged terror group arrested in Britain was said to be targeting two British rabbis and their synagogues, in addition to popular tourist attractions, the U.S. embassy and London’s mayor.

The nine suspects who were arrested last week by British police were indicted Monday. They will be jailed until a court appearance in January, according to police. They were charged with intending to plant explosive devices devised from instructions taken from the Internet.

The addresses of the two targeted rabbis and their synagogues appeared on a list of six targets found by police. The list also included the London Stock Exchange, the mayor’s office, the U.S. embassy and the dean of St Paul’s Chapter House. The suspects were also seen studying the tower of Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the Church of Scientology, according to reports.
