Britain's security services have discovered a plot by an unidentified "Middle East group" to perpetrate a terrorist attack on London's Underground rail network using the highly lethal sarin gas.
The attack was intended to duplicate a 1995 attack on a subway line in Tokyo by the Japanese Aum Shinrikyo cult which killed 12 people. British security authorities are linking the London plot with the discovery of a weapons cache in Germany in December, which was linked to Saudi terrorist Osama bin Laden.
London has long been regarded as a safe haven for Islamic radicals, and it is thought to have provided the command and control center for groups which perpetrate atrocities abroad, said a senior police source.
