LONDON - British police said on Tuesday they had arrested five men close to a nuclear reprocessing plant in northwest England under counter-terrorism laws.

The arrests were made after Prime Minister David Cameron urged Britain to remain vigilant against potential reprisals following the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by US forces.

Police said they were unaware of any link between the arrests and bin Laden's death.

The men were arrested on Monday after officers conducted a stop check on a vehicle near the Sellafield site in Cumbria.

The men are all aged in their 20s and from London.
