Somali on UK Terror Watch List Skips Town

Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.

Detectives have asked for help to trace a man believed to have absconded from a terror control measure.

Police say Ibrahim Magag, 28, who is of Somali origin, is not considered to "represent a direct threat to the British public".

TPims replaced control orders in January 2012, amid some controversy.

Home Office minister James Brokenshire said: "We do not believe his disappearance is linked to any terrorism planning in the UK."

He added: "The Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure in this case was intended to prevent fundraising and overseas travel."
