British Anti-Terror Raid Nets Eight

British police are calling a pre-dawn raid in central England "a major counter-terrorism operation." Eight suspects were apprehended in the city of Birmingham and charged with “suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.” Officials said the Birmingham raid was part of a nation-wide operation. The U.K. is presently on "severe" alert, indicating that a terrorist attack is highly likely.
