Teenager held after terror suspect fled in burqa

A teenager has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a terror suspect who escaped surveillance by dressing in a burqa.

Anti-terror officers arrested the 17-year-old man on Thursday morning on suspicion of conspiring with another to breach measures in a notice issued under the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (Tpim) Act 2011, Scotland Yard said.

The arrest is in connection with the escape of Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who was last seen fleeing a London mosque in women’s clothing last November.
