British authorities said Tuesday they want to deport nine terrorism suspects arrested earlier this month in a highly publicized police operation. The men were among 12 people arrested as part of a rushed anti-terror swoop across northern England on April 8. The raids were hastily moved forward after a senior police officer inadvertently revealed the operation to the media. While British officials haven't provided any details about what the men were suspected of doing, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said authorities were on to "a very big terrorist plot." But officials have yet to bring charges against any of the men, most of whom are Pakistanis visiting the country on student visas.
