"Maps with circles around the Czech Embassy"

Polish police have "detained two Pakistani terror suspects."

The Czech Embassy in Poland went on high alert yesterday after Polish police detained two Pakistani terror suspects.

Czech radio reported that Polish police had searched the apartments of the two men and found maps with circles around the Czech Embassy, along with a leaflet from Italy's Alitalia airline with two crosses marked on an airplane.

Poland has been America's staunchest ally in the war in Iraq among the eight former communist countries due to join the European Union on May 1 along with Cyprus and Malta. Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary signed letters of support for the U.S. position in the run-up to the Iraq war.
