This morning, British police raided a home near London’s Olympic Park in what they labeled a “pre-planned anti-terror operation.”
AP has the story:
A total of six people were arrested there and in separate raids in other parts of the capital, but Scotland Yard said the operation was not linked to the upcoming games, due to kick off on July 27.
Police didn’t identify the suspects, who range in age from 18 to 30.
However Mizanur Rahman, who is involved with a Muslim activist group, said all those arrested were British Muslims. He said the three men taken into custody in Stratford, the neighborhood that contains Olympic Park, were brothers and claimed that one was a former police officer.
A police press officer declined to comment on the claim.
Resident John Smallshaw said a raid took place at a residence on Abbey Road, only about a mile (1.6 kilometers) from the Olympic Park.
