9 Men Arrested in the UK on Suspicion of Terrorism
Whenever a terrorist cell slips between the cracks in a major nation like the United Kingdom, we all get a little worried. That’s what happened today, when police arrested radical preacher Anjem Choudary, and 8 other men on suspicion of terrorism.
Homes, and businesses throughout London are being searched in connection with the men. But right now, the Scotland Yard reports that there is no immediate threat to public safety.
A Muslim activist, Abu Izzadeen was also a part of the arrests.
The investigation began after a series of tweets were posted by Choundary, with an anti-western tone. The preacher referred to ongoing events involving ISIS, as well as Syria. All 9 men are suspected to be involved with an organization promoting terrorism.
