London police have arrested four suspected terrorists in several raids throughout the British capital. Police say the young men are being detained on suspicion of preparing or instigating acts of terrorism. They remain in custody, and homes and vehicles in west and central London are being searched as part of what police call an ongoing investigation into Islamic-related terrorism.
The terror threat in the U-K was recently raised to ‘severe’ because of the increase in the number of Britons traveling to Syria to join up with the Islamic State group.
