THE man who plotted with London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan has been arrested by the police.

Nazam Hussain, 34, has been detained on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts after a search of his home address in Stoke-on-Trent, England on Sunday, December 1. His arrest follows a review of terrorists released on licence in the wake of the terrorist attack carried out in the capital on Friday, November 29, which killed two people and injured three others.

Hussain is one of nine extremists who were convicted in 2012 for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange. Both Hussain and Khan were originally given indeterminate sentences with a minimum term of eight years behind bars. However, they were released on licence in December of last year after they successfully appealed against their sentences and were instead given fixed terms.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said there was no information to suggest the arrest was linked to the London Bridge attack and there is “no immediate risk to public safety.”
