The Metropolitan Police has confirmed that a further three men have been arrested in London today in connection with possible terror offences.
The men, aged 21, 24 and 25, were arrested in central London and are being held on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism. Four addresses in northwest London and one business premises in west London were searched.
A spokesperson for the Met said: "All three were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism."
Today's arrests bring the total arrested in the capital in the last week to eight. Two were released today. A court granted further detention in the case of two others, who remain in custody.
Tarik Hassane, Gusai Abuzeid, Yasir Mahmoud and Rawan Kheder were four of those arrested last week. ITV is reporting that Kheder is one of those released today.
The security services have long warned that Britain may be at risk from jihadists returning from Syria and Iraq where they have fought with Islamic State. One of those arrested in the capitallast week had apparently just returned from Syria. Last week London's Mayor, Boris Johnson, said security services now believe there may be 'thousands' of terrorism suspects currently in London.
