LONDON, England # Six terror suspects are being questioned by police after traces of one of the world’s deadliest poisons, ricin, were discovered at a London address.
Scotland Yard said the six men of north African origin were arrested after an operation by the anti-terrorist branch in north and east London.
A spokesman said “equipment and materials” were found at an address in Wood Green in the British capital where one of the men was also arrested.
A woman who was also arrested has been released.
Ricin is twice as deadly as cobra venom and is derived from the seeds and pods of the castor bean plant and may be inhaled, ingested or injected. There is no known antidote.
