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."
