Armed British police arrest man on suspicion of terrorism offences

LONDON (Reuters) - British police said they had arrested a man in London early on Friday on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts.

The arrest of the 18 year-old man took place in a street in the north London area and involved armed officers, London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

The arrest was not connected to Saturday’s wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said.
