One Damn Thing After Another

Spain, France, England

British police foiled a series of suicide bomb attacks at a Manchester United soccer match with the arrest of 10 people in anti-terror raids on Monday, the Sun newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The paper quoted an unnamed police source as saying the suspects had bought tickets for seats around the club's 67,000-capacity stadium for their premier league match against Liverpool on Saturday.

"The plot involved several individual bombers in separate parts of the stadium," the source told the paper. "If successful, any such attack would have caused absolute carnage."

Ten people were held under anti-terror laws in a series of dawn raids involving 400 police across northern England on Monday.
