ISIS Plotted Diplomat Kidnappings 17 Held in Europe [VIDEO]

A coordinated Europe-wide sweep rounded up 17 suspected militants Thursday, officials said, and were linked to an alleged plot to attack British and Norwegian diplomats in the Middle East. β€œThis is the most important international police operation in Europe in 20 years,” said Italian anti-terrorism chief Giuseppe Governale. Sixteen of the suspects were Kurds and one a Kosovan. They were apparently set on freeing fundamentalist Norwegian preacher Najmuddin Ahmad Faraj.
