Police Arrest 14 in UK Terror Raids

 The school is set in 54 acres and has 100 roomsPolice have arrested 14 men following anti-terror raids in south and east London.

An Islamic school is being searched as part of an anti-terror operation which saw armed officers raid a packed restaurant and arrest a group of customers.

Scotland Yard said police are scouring Jameah Islameah, an independent school for boys aged 11 to 16 in Mark Cross, east Sussex, but no arrests have been made. 

Police said the 14 – believed to be young British Muslsims of Pakistani origin – were arrested after surveillance by Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorist Branch and MI5.

They are being held for the alleged recruitment, training and encouraging of people to take part in terrorist acts.

The arrests are not linked to the recent alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners, or the July 7 bombings in London.

Meanwhile, in a separate operation, two men were arrested in anti-terror raids in Manchester.

The arrests are linked to raids that took place on August 23 when one man was held and a house was searched.

He is still being held by police under anti-terrorism legislation.

British police arrested 14 people in raids and said Saturday they suspected the men had been involved in training and recruiting for terror attacks. Two others were arrested in an unrelated terror investigation in Manchester.

Police said the arrests late Friday and early Saturday were not linked to last month’s alleged plot to bomb U.S.-bound passenger jets or to the July 2005 attacks on London’s transport network.

Authorities said the arrests followed months of surveillance and stemmed from an investigation into terror training and recruitment.

I wonder how long it will take someone on the left to say, “The timing is suspect”???
