A British man alleged to have worked with an infamous Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) unit known for torturing and beheading western captives has been arrested on terrorism charges in the UK, according to local media reports.

Aine Davis, 38, was taken into custody soon after his flight arrived at Luton airport north of London on Tuesday night, the Times reported, citing a statement by Scotland Yard.

“A 38-year-old man was arrested this evening after he arrived into the UK on a flight from Turkey,” the police agency said, noting he is suspected of several terrorism offenses and had been taken to a south London police station for holding.

According to the Times, Davis was arrested on “suspicion of terrorist fundraising, being concerned in a terrorist funding arrangement and possession of an article for terrorist purposes.” (RT)
