Five Terrorists Believed Connected to the Brussels and Paris Attacks Arrested in... England

Coming to a theater of war near you.

From The Telegraph:

Five people have been arrested by British anti-terror police as part of an operation with Belgian and French authorities following attacks in Europe.

Counter-terror officers in the West Midlands said they were working with MI5 and international partners to "address any associated threat to the UK" after militants struck in Brussels and Paris.

Whitehall sources described the arrests as "significant".


A key line of inquiry is whether the group is connected to Mohamed Abrini, a prime suspect in both the Brussels terror attacks last month and the November Paris atrocities.

Abrini is known to have visited contacts in Birmingham last year as well as visiting London and Manchester.

Abrini, the "Man in the Hat" or "The Third Man," was recently arrested in Brussels for his part in the airport/metro bombings. He's the guy who says he was "forced" to take part and "wouldn't hurt a fly."
