Terror arrest over Coventry men in Syria

A man from Coventry has been questioned by counter-terrorism police over three men who secretly went to fight in Syria.

The 19-year-old was held on suspicion of failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism.

He was arrested yesterday afternoon in connection with three men from Coventry - Ali Kalantar, Mohammed Ismail and Rashid Amani - who travelled to Syria in March 2014 and were believed to be engaged in the conflict. Kalantar and Amani have since been reported killed in the fighting.

West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit officers have bailed the man.

He was questioned under section 38 of the Terrorism Act 2000. There was no risk to the public, police said.
