LONDON - British police said they had arrested six people in anti-terrorism raids across central England and London on Monday.

Six properties were being searched as part of the investigation while five men, aged 22, 35, 36, and two 27-year-olds, and a 32-year-old woman, were in police custody.Britain is on its second highest threat level meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely. Last week Britain's foreign intelligence chief said Islamic State militants were using turmoil in Syria to plot attacks against the United Kingdom and her allies.
