A planned Christmas terror attack has been foiled by Police as they raid 5 homes in the U.K.

Police are calling it an ‘Islamist related’ investigation.

Via Daily Mail:

Police have raided five properties and arrested four men on suspicion of plotting a ‘Christmas terror attack’.

 

Specialist counter terrorism police officers arrested three men aged 22, 36 and 41, at addresses in Sheffield on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

A 31-year-old man was arrested at an address in Chesterfield on suspicion of the same offence.

All four were arrested by anti-terror police working with MI5 in the ‘Islamist related’ investigation, with people evacuated from their homes and schools placed on lock down this morning.

Terrified residents described hearing explosions during the dramatic early morning raids and seeing bomb disposal officers removing ‘packages’ – which come amid chilling warnings from ISIS threatening to attack festive events in the UK.
