Men arrested in Obama assassination plot

Police in Tennessee have arrested two men in a plot to kill Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, Sky Newshas reported. According to US authorities the men, described as neo-nazi skinheads, planned to go on a killing spree aimed at shooting and decapitating up to 102 blacks with Obama listed as a final target. US correspondent Ian Woods said, "It is not necessarily a credible threat to the senator's life. But eight days before an election, clearly something like this will be taken very seriously." No other channel has yet reported the story in the UK.
