LONDON (REUTERS) – British police arrested two people at Heathrow airport on Saturday on suspicion of “terrorism" -related activities in Syria, they said.
A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of “preparing for acts of terrorism” in relation to Syria and a 20-year-old man was held on suspicion of “sending property overseas for the purpose of assisting terrorism in Syria.”
A police spokesman said the two arrests were not connected.
Officers from the Counter Terrorism command unit made the arrest but police said the detention of the 19-year-old was not in response to any immediate risk or threat.
