British Counterterrorism Police Make Arrest

LONDON — British counterterrorism police reportedly have arrested a 25-year-old man Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation into threats to kill Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

According to Britain’s Press Association, the man was arrested on suspicion of committing offenses under Britain’s terror laws. He’s the fourth person to be arrested on terror charges in northern England in the past two weeks. Police are still questioning three men they arrested August 14th.

Last week, the BBC reported the first three men arrested were being held in connection with a Web site posting signed “al-Qaida in Britain” that threatened the life of Brown and his predecessor Tony Blair.
