#Nabbed: Three men arrested in Pakistan over 7/7 anniversary bomb plot

Three men have been arrested in Pakistan over fears they were planning an attack in London on the 10th anniversary of the July 7 bombings.

The men – named locally as Afghan-origin brothers Azmatullah and Abdul Rehman, and Mummad Ibrahim – were held during a police raid on a shop in Peshawar, close to the Afghan border.

According to reports, police discovered Islamic State propaganda as well as maps of London on computers inside the shop.

Documents containing threats against the Pakistan Army were also discovered, but no weapons were found.

Security checks on international flights from Pakistan have been stepped up since their arrest.

This week marks ten years since 52 people were killed by suicide bombers on London’s transport network.

Prime Minister David Cameron is set to join families of the victims for a memorial event in Hyde Park on Tuesday.
