British police arrest man in Islamist terror probe

London (AFP) - Police in Britain said Wednesday they had arrested a 31-year-old man in London in connection with suspected “extremist Islamist terrorism”.

“The man was detained by officers at a business address in south London” on Tuesday, London’s Metropolitan Police said.

"The arrest is being linked to extremist Islamist terrorism," it said, adding that police had also searched a residential address in south London.

The man is suspected “of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism”, the statement added.

Clearly a very small minority of the community as a whole but still.
