A newspaper reported Sunday that police have uncovered evidence that al-Qaida plotted to interrupt Internet services in Britain. Raids by Metropolitan Police detectives found computer files indicating that terrorist suspects had targeted a high-security Internet "hub" in London that handles most of the Internet information that passes in and out of Britain, including London's businesses and stock exchange, the Sunday Times said. It quoted an unidentified government security official as saying the Internet plotters apparently planned to infiltrate the "hub," possibly to blow it up from the inside, according to evidence on a computer hard drive seized in raids on the homes of terror suspects in southern England last year. London's Metropolitan Police Service was not immediately available to comment on the newspaper report and failed to answer to recorded messages left with its media department on Sunday.
