Suspected U.K. Terror Plot Thwarted

British police in Birmingham arrested seven alleged Islamists who were reportedly planning an attack. Six young men and one 22-year-old woman were taken into custody, West Midlands Police said in a statement. Officials said the plot was still in its early stages. Britain's terror-threat level was downgraded from "severe" to "substantial" in July, meaning that there is a "strong possibility" of an attack.
