Noose Tightening on European Jihadis

Italy, once again, going after the jihadis. This time they nab 20 across Europe, including two in Britain. One in Manchester, the other in Croydon.

Gotta love Glenn's comment, but it's fairly certain today's arrests are related to an arrest made in Italy in September of a man involved with al Qaeda agents recruiting for jihad in Iraq. At the time authorities confirmed that other houses in Italy were being searched.

UPDATE: Looks like I was wrong. A friend tells me that these arrests have nothing to do with the earlier ones and based on an entirely separate investigation that had been going on for years.
