At least three people have been arrested in connection with a possible plot to kill U.S. presidential hopeful Barack Obama during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, according to U.S. media reports.
Local TV station CBS4 reported on its website that one of as many as four people in custody told authorities that the group was "going to shoot Obama from a high vantage point" with a rifle.
The New York Times reported early Tuesday that three people were arrested on firearms and drug charges in what Denver police called an "aggressive" inquiry resulting from a traffic stop on Sunday.
