Mumbai style terror attacks were planned for London, Paris

This really should not surprise anyone, but here we go:
The group - thought to be linked to Al Qaeda - were also planning similar attacks in France and Germany.
The alleged plotters had been tracked for some time by the agencies involved, with the latest plot unearthed after intelligence sharing between London, France, Germany and the US.
The plot is believed to have been at an advanced stage, but was not imminent.
It came to light after the US military began helping its European allies by trying to pick off the organisers.
In an effort to foil a suspected terrorist plot, the Central Intelligence Agency increased missile strikes against militants in Pakistan's tribal regions.
The strikes, launched from unmanned drone aircraft, represent a rare use of the CIA's drone campaign to preempt a possible attack on the West.

Just a reminder to be vigilant.
Oh and....thank you US Military.
