Three Iraqis Arrested For Attack Plot

German police arrested three Iraqi men this morning. A federal prosecutor says they're suspected of planning to attack Iraq's Prime Minister, Ayad Allawi, during his visit to Berlin today.

The men are thought to be members of the terror group, Ansar Al-Islam. Ansar Al-Islam was founded in September 2001 and is aimed at founding an Islamic state in the Kurdish part of northern Iraq. The group uses bombings and shootings following the Taliban's example.
