UK: 2 Muslim terrorists planning a terror attack arrested in overnight raids

Counter terror police have arrested two Muslim terrorists in an operation in Dewsbury.

An ongoing operation was carried out last night, with reports of many residents in the area hearing a “loud bang”.

It’s thought the operation focused on a street in Savile Town.

Two Muslims from Dewsbury, aged 52 and 21, have been arrested by Counter Terrorism Policing North East for the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

Both remain in custody at this time for questioning.

Two addresses are being searched in connection with the arrests.

A Counter Terrorism Policing North East spokesman said: ‘The public may have heard loud bangs at the time police entered the properties. We would like to reassure them that this was part of the method of entry to gain access.

‘We appreciate local people may have concerns as a result of this activity and we are grateful for their patience and understanding while these enquiries are carried out.

‘We would also like to reassure them that the arrests were pre-planned and part of a proactive, intelligence-led investigation by Counter Terrorism Policing North East.’
