#1 Update Seven men held in UK over terror offenses Seven men have been arrested on suspicion of terrorist offences in Britain after a routine vehicle search turned up firearms and weapons, police said Friday.
THE arrests, which took place earlier this week in South Yorkshire in northern England, were announced one day after officers in London detained six other terror suspects using stun guns and smoke grenades in early-morning swoops, including one on a home close to London's Olympic Park.
Police insist that the 13 arrests in recent days did not involve threats to the Olympics set to begin in three weeks, but the counter-terror sweeps - and a false alarm on Thursday that involved a bus filled with passengers - have raised anxiety in the run-up to the games.
