That'll show us, all right.
Police have arrested five suspected Islamist terrorists planning to assassinate the Pope.
The men were arrested during raids at 5.45am at a business premises in central London based on an intelligence tip off received overnight.
The suspects, aged 26, 27, 36, 40 and 50 were arrested by officers from Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
