An Iraqi allegedly linked to a Sunni terror group that conducted attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces has been arrested in Italy, police said Friday. The suspect was arrested in the northern city of Padua on international terrorism charges, the Carabinieri paramilitary police said. Officials did not identify the Sunni group but said it had ties to al-Qaida and had carried out numerous attacks in Iraq. The man, suspected of providing the group with logistical support, was preparing to leave for Iraq to carry out an attack with an ultra-light aircraft, the Carabinieri said.
