Birmingham Teenager Arrested By Anti-Terror Police

Another teenager, from Birmingham, has been arrested over Syria-related terror offences.

An 18-year-old was detained on suspicion of preparing to travel to Syria to join militant group Islamic State, West Midlands Police said.

He was arrested by counter-terrorism officers at his home in Hodge Hill at 7am on Monday, in what police said was a pre-planned and intelligence-led operation.

It follows the arrest of a 19-year-old man and two 17-year-old boys from north-west London on Saturday, on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts.

The three were stopped by officials in Turkey as they tried to travel to Syria and returned to the UK over the weekend.

All three have been bailed while investigations continue.
