Queen Elizabeth murder plot foiled

An alleged plot by four Islamic terrorists to kill Queen Elizabeth has been uncovered days before the Remembrance Day on November 11.

British Metropolitan Police have arrested four Islamic terror suspects in relation to a plan to stab the 88-year-old monarch to death at the Royal Albert Hall, The Sun reported.

The Queen had been due to attend the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Hall today and both she and UK Prime Minister David Cameron had been informed of the threat, the paper said.

The assassination plot was foiled during routine surveillance by secret intelligent agency MI5.

Four men aged 19 to 27 years of age were arrested during raids across west London and High Wycombe in the Thames Valley by Heavily-armed counter terrorist police.
