Rome: Ali Salah al-Gamal, Muhammad Khalid al-Zahid, and Magdi Ahmad al-Sahabi'i, three Egyptian citizens arrested in Anzio, in the province of Rome, back in October 2002, are to be sent for trial in connection with an investigation conducted by the Public Prosecutor's Office in the capital.
According to the prosecution the three men were planning to conduct terrorist attacks at Rome's Fiumicino [Leonardo da Vinci] airport, at the US war cemetery in Nettuno [a town adjacent to Anzio], and in a number of McDonald's outlets. Also 1.4 kg of explosives and a suicide attacker's belt were discovered in the three men's living quarters in Anzio.
