British police arrest six suspected terrorists and radical Muslim cleric

A well-known radical Muslim cleric is among six men arrested during anti-terrorism raids by the British police this morning.

Five of the six were detained in London and one in Luton.

The police say they are being held on suspicion of inciting others to commit acts of terrorism overseas and raising funds for terrorism.

One of the men is Abu Izzadeen, who is best known for interrupting a speech to British Muslims by Home Secretary John Reid last September.

He described the politician as "an enemy of Islam" and a "tyrant" and accused the British Government of state terrorism against Muslims.
