British police free two of three Europeans held under anti-terrorism laws

British authorities have released two of three European men arrested earlier this week under anti-terrorism laws, police said. “Two men have been released and a third man remains in custody,” said a spokesman for the police in the southern county of Sussex. He said judicial authorities had authorised police to keep the third man in custody for an additional 72 hours for further questioning. Two of the three men, aged 35 and 38, were arrested Tuesday in an apartment in the Sussex town of Crawley near London’s second airport of Gatwick, where police also found two home-made bombs. The third man, aged 41, was arrested at an undisclosed location. Police have said the three men were from “western Europe.” One of Gatwick’s two terminals was forced to close for several hours on February 13 when a 37-year-old Venezuelan man, travelling on a British Airways flight from Latin America, was arrested upon arrival for possession of a hand grenade in his baggage. He was charged under anti-terror laws. Full Story
