World

Police in south-eastern England arrested two 15-year-old boys on Thursday under the suspicion of “preparing for terrorist acts,” suggesting they were “extreme right” sympathizers.

TheĀ  boys were arrested by counter-terrorism police at their homes in the port town of Ramsgate, then taken to a police station for questioning, the local Kent Police said in a statement.

Detective Superintendent Nigel Doak of Counter-Terrorism Police South-east said the arrests were “pre-planned and intelligence-led, and there was no immediate threat to the public.”

“We are committed to tackling any and all ideologies which pose a threat to the public’s safety and security,” Doak said.

The police statement gave no further details concerning the matter.
