Anti-Terror Police Arrest Woman At UK Airport
A 25-year-old woman has been arrested at Luton Airport on suspicion of Syria-related terror offences.
Detectives from the West Midlands counter-terrorism unit detained the suspect as she got off a flight from Istanbul in Turkey.
The woman, from Haringey in north London, was arrested at around 11.30am as part of a continuing intelligence-led policing operation.
She is being held at a police station in the West Midlands on suspicion of preparing for acts of terrorism.
The terror threat level in the UK was raised from substantial to severe earlier this year.
It came amid increasing concerns over hundreds of aspiring British jihadists travelling to Iraq and Syria to learn terrorist "tradecraft".
Fears of a terrorist attack on Britain's streets have heightened in the wake of the rise of Islamic State (IS).
The extremist group has taken over large swathes of Iraq and Syria and attracted thousands of foreign jihadists, including Britons, to its cause.
