LONDON (AFP) - British police said on Monday they had arrested a 21-year-old man returning from Istanbul to London's Stansted airport on suspicion of being involved in terrorism abroad.

It is the sixth anti-terrorism arrest in the past week involving travel to Turkey, which shares a border with Syria.

London's Metropolitan Police declined to say whether the latest arrest was linked to the conflict in Syria, where numerous Britons have travelled to fight with jihadi groups.

"It wasn't for any threat to the UK," a police spokesman told AFP.
