PUBLISHED October 4, 2005

Five foreign terror suspects are being held in prison under immigration laws after being arrested yesterday in dawn raids across Britain.

The unnamed men, all Muslims, are being detained by the Home Secretary because he says their presence represents a threat to national security. Three were detained in the West Midlands, one in London and one in Cardiff. All five are thought to come from north Africa.
