Five suspected terrorists arrested Wednesday in Italy had targeted former President George W. Bush, reports the New York Post.

The suspects, members of the Rome-based extremist group Militia, are charged with plotting a “revolutionary war” and “a series of violent actions” against Bush, Italian politicians who included Rome’s mayor, and a Jewish leader.

Authorities think Militia was planning to join with other extremist  groups in Northern Europe.

On Tuesday, Italian extremist author Gianluca Casseri went on a shooting rampage in Florence, killing two street vendors from Senegal before ending his own life.
