UK Police believe they’ve smashed major Muslim terror cell linked to Paris & Brussels atrocities

Police believe they have smashed a major British terror cell linked to the masterminds of the atrocities in Paris and Brussels after cracking a mobile phone used by one of the attackers.

Four men and a woman from Birmingham were held as officers swooped on the suspected UK arm of the fanatical group who killed 162 in Paris and Brussels in a wave of gun attacks and suicide bombings.

The raids will confirm fears that Islamic State is active in Britain after it emerged that the cell has been under surveillance for at least four months.
