A 28-year-old man arrested by counter-terror police will appear in court over alleged fraud offences.

Scotland Yard said Muhammed Saleem, 28, from Abbey Wood, London – who was arrested on Saturday – is accused of being in possession or controlling an article for use in fraud.

He will appear before Westminster Magistrates Court this morning.

Two other people arrested Saturday – a 33-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman – remain in custody at a central London police station, police said.

A search in east London continues.

The most recent arrests follow series of raids across the country over the past week.

Dawn raids in London on Thursday saw a 33-year-old man arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism and a 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to possess and supply fraudulent documents.

The 33-year-old remains in custody at a central London police station after a custody extension was granted until Thursday, December 11, while the 40-year-old has been bailed until January next year.

Meanwhile, officers questioning five men arrested in connection with a sting at Dover have until Sunday December 14 to question them after being granted warrants by a magistrate.

Two men aged 33 and 43 were detained in Dover last Sunday after Scotland Yard anti-terror officers with armed support officers and Kent Police stopped a car going outbound at the port.

A 28-year-old man was arrested in the same area last Monday morning, while, under the same operation, two men aged 24 and 40 were arrested on the same day in east London.
