Ex-police employee among six held over terror plot
Six people including a former police community support officer and a white Muslim convert were arrested in a series of raids yesterday in connection with a suspected terrorist plot against potential targets in Britain.
Three brothers, aged 18, 24 and 26, were arrested about a mile from the main Olympics site in east London but police said the planned operation was not linked to the Games or the Paralympics.
Two other men and a woman were arrested in west London. According to reports one of the men was a white Muslim convert who has appeared in a YouTube video railing against Britain's role in Afghanistan and the Royal family. Last year the same man named in reports appeared on a BBC documentary called My Brother the Islamist.
