TWO MEN who were arrested in Coventry yesterday morning (August 3) for Syria-related terrorism offences have been released on police bail.

The pair, aged 38 and 40, were detained by officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit at two separate addresses.

Both men were arrested under s.15 of the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of financing terrorism and have been bailed with conditions pending further enquiries.

The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence led – there was no immediate threat to public safety.
