US authorities today arrested 10 people in an anti-terrorism swoop in the northwestern state of Washington, law enforcement officials said.
A joint police and FBI anti-terrorism task force took the suspects, who included both US citizens and foreign nationals, into custody in a series of raids, sources said.
“These arrests are in connection with an FBI joint anti-terrorism task force investigation that we have been involved with for quite a long time,” FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs said….
The warrants indicated that agents were looking for training manuals instructing people how to shoot, assault or kill and were also seeking any information about training children for urban warfare, KOMO said.
KOMO news said one of the locations raided by agents included a barber’s shop where they seized a computer.
The Seattle area has been the site of a number of terrorism-related arrests by US authorities since the September 11, 2001, attacks on America.
