Arrangements for Pope's visit reviewed after arrests

Policing arrangements for Pope Benedict XVI's trip to the United Kingdom were reviewed after five men were arrested Friday morning in London on suspicion of terrorism, London's Metropolitan Police said. 

Police said they are satisfied that the current plan remains "appropriate," and the pope's itinerary did not change.

    What I do not get, is last year the Pope said there was not a problem and did not want to respond to such vicious rumors?

    E.D. No, the God of the Koran and the God of the bible are not the same individual, nor do either books make such an outlandish claim. example–"Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord" say's God's word. While "Jihad" says Allah. These two books contradict ea. other in many ways besides like Jesus being God's only begotten son while Muslims say that is a lie and Jesus is just some prophet. You E.D. have been terribly misinformed.

    Wow a lot of people don't like the pope. No wonder it has been so long since a pope has seen the shores of the U.K.

    Si 11, and of course I never posted that your God was evil. He's just not the same as the God of the bible. And pls. don't confuse the biblical God with the child molesting Catholic god, or the racist Baptist god, etc. "By their fruits you will know my true followers" said Jesus. The fruits of the world's so-called "Christain" religions show who they really serve...and it's not the God of the bible. So what is the true religion? "the religion that is clean an undefiled in the eyes of the true God is this, to look out for widows and orphans, and to keep ones self free from the world of ungodly mankind" say's God's word the bible. Have you ever read it a little?

    You folks wonder why the US gov. makes you put up with foreigners slapping you in the face? clue: since march of this year, our social security payments have been made in China. No, not in the form of another huge loan. In the form of "Ameros" already being minted and shipped to China in exchange. Not unlike Euros, Ameos will be the currency of N. America soon, and in at least this "America" is being sold. Now go save a penny at Wal-Mart. By the way, the Chinese discivered America in 1421. Read Gavin Menzies book.
