Members of Birmingham's Muslim community on Saturday criticized the intense media speculation surrounding the arrest of nine local men over an alleged terrorist plot to kidnap and kill a British soldier. At a packed public meeting at Birmingham Central Mosque, speakers criticized the media for releasing the names of some of those detained and reporting lurid details of their alleged plans. Police are questioning nine men detained Wednesday in this central England city on suspicion of involvement in terrorism. None has yet been charged.
