The move comes only days after authorities in Belgium detained a suspect in connection with deadly attacks in Brussels and Paris who had ties to the Birmingham area. Three men and one woman were arrested Thursday in the central English city of Birmingham.
Another man was also arrested Friday at London’s Gatwick Airport. The five were arrested for suspected ties to the commission, preparation, or instigation of acts of terror. Police would not elaborate on the searches in Birmingham.
