Man arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after TV interview on Woolwich murder

In the UK, a 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences, following a TV interview - in which he claimed one of the Woolwich murder suspects had been approached by MI5 to work for them.

Abu Nusaybah, a friend of one of the suspects, was speaking to the BBC and was arrested there shortly afterwards.

Meanwhile, a preliminary report into what the intelligence services knew about the two suspects will be delivered to the British Prime Minister David Cameron next week.
