#AceUKNews says a former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg has been arrested in the UK along with two other men and a woman.
The four are being held on suspicion of Syria-related terrorist charges in central England, according to police.
Begg was detained on suspicion of “attending a terrorist training camp and facilitating terrorism overseas,” according to West Midlands police.
The police said the arrests were connected. “They were pre-planned and intelligence led.
There was no immediate risk to public safety,” said Detective Superintendent Shaun Edwards, head of investigations for the West Midlands Counter-Terrorism Unit, according to a statement released Tuesday.
A police spokesperson told The Guardian that Begg’s name was confirmed “as a result of the anticipated high public interest” from the media.
