excerpts from: Wedding emails sparked terror swoop
by Martin Bentham, Evening Standard, 14 August 2009
"Seven Pakistani terror suspects were arrested after MI5 decided that their emails contained codewords for a deadly bomb plot.
One email suggested that a girl called “Nadia” would be involved in a “nikah”, a wedding, between 15 and 20 April this year […]
The message, and others sent between the alleged plotters, triggered a major anti-terrorist operation after MI5, which had been monitoring the men for some time, decided that the girls’ names were code for explosive ingredients and the “wedding” was the intended attack."
