The BBC, true to form, gives us no indication that these people were Muslims. The only hint is that the probe was linked to the Paris and Brussels jihad attacks. The BBC does all it can to make sure that Britons have no idea they’re embroiled in a global war.
“UK terror arrests in probe ‘linked to Europe attacks,'” BBC, April 15, 2016:
Five people have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences as part of an investigation launched after the recent attacks in Paris and Brussels, West Midlands Police say.
Three men, aged 26, 40 and 59, and a 29-year-old woman, were held in Birmingham on Thursday night.
A fourth man, 26, was arrested at Gatwick Airport in the early hours of Friday. All five are from Birmingham.
Whitehall officials described the arrests as “significant”.
Police say they worked with MI5 and Belgian and French authorities in an operation “to address any associated threat to the UK following the attacks in Europe”.
They said there was no risk to the public at any time and they had no information to suggest an attack in the UK was being planned.
It is understood that the man arrested at Gatwick Airport had just arrived on a flight into the UK originating in North Africa.
Police said all those arrested are being held in the West Midlands on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Officers are also searching a number of properties in Birmingham….
