Four men held in Syria terror probe released without charge


The four men who were arrested by detectives investigating people travelling to Syria in support of terrorist activity have been released without charge, Scotland Yard said tonight.

One of the men, a 33-year-old, was arrested at Gatwick airport last week as he attempted to take a flight out of UK.

The other three - an 18-year-old, a 31-year-old and a 22-year-old - were arrested at separate addresses in east London the following day.

They have now all been released without charge, police said.
