Two more men have been arrested in South Wales over the Parsons Green terrorist attack, police say. The pair, aged 48 and 30, were taken into custody in Newport just after 5am. Police say they are continuing to search two properties in Newport.
It followed the arrest of a 25-year-old man in the city on Tuesday night in a counter-terrorism raid. The latest arrests bring the number of people being held over Friday’s bomb attack in southwest London to five.
Two other men, aged 18 and 21, are still in custody in connection with the attack. They were both arrested at the weekend. Detectives were earlier given more time to question them.
