Police questioning extended

POLICE have been given extra time to continue questioning a former Guantanamo Bay detainee arrested on suspicion of Syria-related terrorism offences.

Moazzam Begg, 45, from Hall Green, Birmingham, is suspected of attending a terrorist training camp and facilitating terrorism, West Midlands Police said.

He was arrested on Tuesday morning along with a 36-year-old man from Shirley, in Solihull, and a 44-year-old woman and her 20-year-old son, both from Sparkhill, in Birmingham, who were held on suspicion of facilitating terrorism overseas. A spokeswoman said officers had been given an extra five days to question the four.
