A Hull man is one of four people who have been arrested across England on suspicion of terrorism-related crimes.

The pre-planned Italian-led operation saw a 38-year-old Hull man brought into custody on Thursday morning (November 12).

Raid took part in several European countries as part of a bid to halt a suspected “jihadist network”. It is thought the network was planning to free its leader, Mullah Krekar, who is in detention in Norway.

Italy’s Ansa news agency says six suspects were detained in Italy and three in Norway.

Humberside Police officers assisted West Midlands and North East counter terrorism units alongside officers. Officers from the West Midlands, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire also helped.

Men from addresses in Derby, Birmingham and Sheffield aged 32, 33 and 52 respectively were also arrested.

European arrest warrants were used to take the men into custody for alleged terrorism-related crimes under Italian law. The quartet are due to appear in front of Westminster magistrates.

Humberside Police says that nothing uncovered in the operation suggests that local communities are in danger.

The Force made this known to quell any fears about the arrests impacting on the region. It says that the operation is part of a continuing intelligence-led investigation.
