LONDON — Five men were arrested in London over an alleged threat to the pope and police searches were under way at locations across the British capital, police said Friday.

Pope Benedict XVI is in London on the second day of a four-day visit to Britain.

London’s Metropolitan Police said the men, between the ages of 26 and 50, were arrested under the Terrorism Act at a business in central London. Police declined to say whether the men were British or give details of their ethnicity. However, the BBC reported the men were not British nationals. According to Sky News, the suspects were believed to be of Arabic origin.

Sky News reports the men are Algerian.

ZIP says “quick, somebody organize an interfaith conference!”

Update: Men released without charge. They were reportedly “joking” about harming the Pope. Yeah, that’ll get you arrested.
