'Syria terror' arrests: More time for West Midlands Police

Police have been given more time to question two men arrested on Monday on suspicion of terrorism offences relating to activities in Syria.

The 21-year-olds, from Handsworth, Birmingham, were detained at Heathrow Airport after a flight from Istanbul.

They are being questioned by West Midlands Police and magistrates have now granted a warrant allowing officers to hold the men until 20 January.

Police said the men were believed to have travelled to Syria last May.
