British police arrest terror suspect in London

LONDON, ENGLAND (BNO NEWS) -- A 32-year-old man who was taken into custody in east London for carrying a weapon has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism, British police said on Tuesday, but few details were released.

The man, whose identity was not immediately released, was first arrested on Monday night in Stratford in East London on suspicion of possessing an "offensive weapon," a term usually used to describe knives or similar objects that have been made or adapted for the use of causing injuries to a person.

The suspect was again arrested on Tuesday afternoon after officers carried out a search at a residential address in east London, believed to be the man's home. "Officers from the Met's SO15 Counter Terrorism Command arrested the 32-year-old man on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism," a police spokesperson said.

The suspect remains in custody at an east London police station.
