A British soldier was arrested under the UK Terrorism Act after a “suspicious device” was found at a house in Salford last week, reports the BBC.
Military police arrested the 19-year old soldier in Germany and brought him back to the United Kingdom to be questioned. According to the BBC he was questioned about suspected links to right-wing extremism. The arrest was made after a raid carried out by the Greater Manchester Police last week, following a tip about images of abuse on a computer. A 20-year old man was arrested in connection with the raid, during which police found the suspected nail bomb.
Both men have been released on bail.
