Counter-Terrorism Police Arrest Four Men at London's Gatwick Airport
Four men were arrested by Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism officers at London's Gatwick Airport over the weekend, according to Lewis Dean of the International Business Times.
The British men, whose ages ranged from 32 to 38, were refused entry to a resort destination in Turkey last week and subsequently flown back to the U.K. where they were arrested on Saturday.
The arrests were made under the Civil Aviation Act 1982.
"On Saturday May 2, officers from the Met's counter-terrorism command arrested four men aged 36, 38, 37 and 32," said the Metropolitan Police in a statement. "They were arrested for an offence under the Civil Aviation Act 1982. The men were taken to south London police stations and bailed to return to a date in mid-June."
The four men were stopped by officials at Turkey's Antalya Airport on April 29. However, it is still unknown why the quartet was denied entry.
