British Jihad Update: “4 terror suspects arrested in U.K.,” from the Toronto Star, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Four additional terror suspects have been arrested in London under Britain’s anti-terrorism laws and reports say officials are investigating whether the men are linked to an alleged Ontario terror plot.
The four, all British citizens, are in custody in a London police station. One man, aged 28, was arrested yesterday and the three others, two 21-year-olds and a 29-year-old, were arrested Monday.
The arrests were part of a British investigation that led to charges earlier this month against a 21-year-old and 16-year-old, who face allegations of conspiracy to murder and cause public nuisance by using poisons or explosives.
At the time, sources told the Star, officials believed the 21-year-old had connections to the group of 17 Ontario suspects now in custody.
Of the latest arrests, the BBC reports police are trying to establish whether the four were giving support to the Ontario group, which police allege was plotting a series of attacks in the province.
