Milan: Italian police says they have arrested
a Moroccan man on suspicion of plotting an attack against a
Milan synagogue.

The LaPresse news agency says the 20-year-old was
arrested this morning in the Sardinian city of Cagliari.

Authorities also confiscated a computer they say contains
plans for the attack, including details of the synagogue`s
security detail and potential access points.

Anti-terrorism investigators identified the suspect —
who has lived in Italy from age 6, from Internet traffic
including a Facebook page on how to assemble explosives.

LaPresse said authorities were working with US and British
authorities for possible connections in the case.
