Two Terrorism Arrests At Heathrow Airport
Two people have been arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of committing terrorism offences.
A man and a woman were held at 8.30pm on Tuesday after arriving on a flight from Egypt into the airport.
The pair, both aged 26, were arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
They were taken to a central London police station, where they remain in custody.
In recent months concerns have been raised that foreign nationals are travelling to Syria with the intention of supporting jihadist movements.
In August, Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, said a number of people in his constituency were travelling to the war-torn Middle Eastern state, and that he expected this to increase.
The nationalities of the arrested pair have not yet been released, but they are not Egyptian.
Two addresses being searched in east London are residential, Scotland Yard said.
what do you think?
Wait- how can this be possible when we are supporting the fake Syrian army? That's were all the terrorists are! Murdering children and cutting off peoples heads. Executions in broad day light.
Its very easy to be arrested at Heathrow airport. I was almost refused a flight because I wore a t shirt which had a chimp holding a gun which said "make my day" the trainee se curity officer highly trained in political correctness made me put my t shirt on inside out!
Whilst security may appear stupid at times part of the problem is that a terrorist rarely wears a T shirt saying I am a terrorist so all must suffer for the sake of a few and it only takes one.
You would be surprised how many passengers don't like to travel on an aircraft next to someone with a gun on his t shirt...
Or one reading a terrorist manual or the Quran
