UK terror plot aimed at landmarks
London - British security officials say a large-scale terror attack was aimed at landmarks and public spaces, as more details of the plot emerged and police searched the homes of 12 British suspects being held for questioning.
The men were arrested on Monday in the largest counter terrorism raid in nearly two years. At least five were of Bangladeshi origin.
Lord Carlile, the government's independent reviewer of terror legislation, said on Tuesday the alleged plot appeared significant and involved several UK cities.
Police have up to 28 days to either charge the men or release them.
Possible targets included the Houses of Parliament and shopping areas, according to a security official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
