LONDON, November 7. / TASS/ The police have detained four people in the British capital. They detained are suspected of preparing to carry out a terrorist attack on the territory of the United Kingdom, Sky News TV channel said on Friday.
Men, aged between 22 and 27, were brought to the police stations located in the center of London.
According to Scotland Yard, searches and seizures were made in the framework of the "ongoing investigation of terrorist activities related to Islamic extremism."
On Tuesday, in the County of Cornwall in south-western England, a 26-year-old citizen of Bangladesh was detained. He is suspected of preparing to carry out a terrorist attack. However, the immediate threat to Britain's national security was not reported to the police.
He attracted the attention of security services by expressing support to Islamic extremists in Syria, in his Internet messages. As a source close to security servicetold the local media, his arrest was provoked by the content of his messages and did not involve any attempts of a bomb planting or armed attack against British military or civilians.
Over the last weeks, police arrested several suspects over plotting terrorist attacks in different parts of Britain, including in London. Among those arrested are young people who fell under influence of Islamic State propaganda and propaganda of other terrorist groups based in Syria and Iraq.
A group detained in British capital this October was contemplating an attack on a police station and military barracks in West London. In several other cases police arrested Muslim extremists responsible for organizing the transportation of ‘volunteers’ to Syria and Iraq for military service.
