Two ‘ISIS fanatics’ arrested over sinister photographs of Italian landmarks that warned of the countdown to the ‘zero hour’

Two suspected ISIS fanatics have been arrested in Italy after allegedly posting threatening photos of the Colosseum on Twitter, claiming they were counting down to ‘the zero hour’.

Police in Milan said a 35-year-old Tunisian Briki Lassaad and Pakistani Waqas Muhammad, 27, had been arrested in a dawn raid in the nearby city of Brescia.

The Tunisian allegedly set up the Twitter handle ‘Islamic_State_in_Rom’ and, together with his alleged accomplice, planned terrorist attacks in Italy, including a military base.
