Pope tours despite alleged threat

2010-09-18 13:54
London - Pope Benedict XVI has met with British Prime Minister David Cameron as six men arrested in an alleged terror attempt against the pontiff remain in police custody.

Benedict was also meeting with the deputy prime minister and Britain's opposition leader on Saturday before celebrating Mass in Westminster Cathedral.

Benedict is carrying on with his plans despite a pre-dawn raid on a garbage depot on Friday in which police arrested five cleaners accused of preparing a terror plot. A sixth person was arrested later. The Vatican says the pope is calm and no changes to his itinerary are planned.

Later on Saturday, demonstrators opposed to the pope's visit are expected to stage their main protest, marching from Hyde Park to the entrance of Downing Street, Cameron's residence.
