Two teenagers have been arrested in Manchester after a British man flew to the US, bought a weapon and held people hostage in a 10-hour stand-off at a synagogue.
US President Joe Biden branded the incident “an act of terror” and UK police are working with authorities in America on the investigation.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) announced that officers from Counter Terror Policing North West had made two arrests in south Manchester on Sunday evening.
They said the teenagers, whose ages and genders they did not immediately confirm, remain in custody for questioning.
GMP said police forces in the region are liaising with local communities to put in place any measures to provide further reassurance.
