Man Arrested in Wales Linked to British Jihadis in Syria - UPDATE: Multiple Raids in London

I don't mind that this guy was just arrested. But wouldn't it save a lot of taxpayer time and money if they'd just let him ship off to Syria where he'd most likely have been killed?

The North West Counter Terrorism Unit and the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit took the teenager in.

His arrest under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006 was assisted by officers from Greater Manchester Police.

It comes as a man believed to be one of three people from Cardiff who have joined jihadist group Isis in Syria told BBC Wales he is prepared to die for the cause.

Aseel Muthana, 17, left Britain in February to join his older brother Nasser in the country and says he has no plans to return....

The video, thought to be filmed in Syria, showed Nasser Muthana and Reyaad Khan, both 20 and from Cardiff, appeared online two weeks ago.

The pair, who appeared along with a man from Aberdeen, urged others to join the Isis (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) fight in the country.

The cornhole: watch it or lose it.

UPDATE: I don't know if the two are connected, but apparently there's a big counter-terror operation going on in London as we speak.
