Police said they have broken up a terror cell whose alleged head recruited Islamic extremists in northern Italy for attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan. Anti-terror police official Claudio Galzerano said authorities on Saturday arrested four Tunisians and one Moroccan in and around Bologna on suspicion of international terrorism. A sixth suspect was still being sought. Galzerano said those arrested included the cell's alleged leader and that he was a veteran of the Bosnian war who recruited his comrades for suicide attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq. He said the cell also sent tens of thousands of euros to affiliated groups in Bosnia that conduct training and give logistical support to terrorist organizations in the two Asian countries.
