British Jihad Update: “British police arrest terror suspects,” from AP, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Police in Britain have arrested a 21-year-old man as a terrorist suspect and were conducting searches at three locations, authorities said Wednesday….
Also Wednesday, a man wanted in the United States on a charge of receiving military gear for terrorist purposes faces a court appearance in London.
Syed Hashmi, 26, was arrested by the Metropolitan Police Extradition Unit Tuesday night at Heathrow airport.
A US extradition warrant alleges that between Jan. 1, 2004 and March 1, 2004 he received property intending that it be used for terrorism. He was indicted last month by a US grand jury in the southern district of New York, police said. His nationality was not immediately available.
Not that it matters much. But his religion does, as it is almost certainly what motivated him in the direction of terror. But that isn’t even on AP’s radar screen.
