Three Moroccans were arrested in Italy for allegedly operating a terrorism school. Those detained were said to be part of a terrorist cell that trained militants at a mosque in the central Italian city of Perugia. One of the suspects detained was the imam of the mosque who had chemicals used to make explosives stored in his home. Italy has so far been spared terrorist attacks.
