British woman, Moroccan man tried to blow up synagogue

A 40-year old British woman and a 20-year old Moroccan man were arrested in England and Italy, respectively, and charged with plotting to blow up a famous Milan synagogue (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
The 40-year-old woman, who has not been named, was held in a dawn raid by officers from Scotland Yard and at the same time Italian police arrested Mohamed Jarmoune, 20, following months of undercover detective work that involved monitoring a secret Facebook account.

Metal worker Jarmoune was held at his home in Brescia, northern Italy and video footage released by police showed officers with sniffer dogs carrying out an extensive search of his apartment and he was also shown being led away.

Officers took away several items including his computer as well as several Nazi flags that were found in the apartment, which was in the centre of city and which has been the scene of several anti terror investigations in the past.

Tonight he was being held on suspicion of plotting an attack on the Jewish synagogue in Milan with the use of information that he had downloaded from the internet and police revealed he had images of the building stored on the hard drive of his computer.

He had detailed security measures for the synagogue and a pencil diagram appeared to show a series of four gas canisters connected to a battery, which was also linked to a mobile telephone, while other images showed the preparation of explosives.


Anti terror officers in Brescia also said that they had intercepted messages on various Islamic extremist websites and discussion boards, from Jarmoune in which he spoke of carrying out a 'jihad mission'.
Although the woman's role in this story is unclear to me, it sounds like there's a whole lot about the man (who is pictured in the article) that they are not telling us.

Unfortunately, it's probably just a matter of time before a Jewish target is attacked in Europe. There's way too much hostility to us there.

40 is too young for it to be Vanessa Redgrave so it's probably a relative of hers.
