Sources said the arrests were based on a tip-off and the investigation was at an early stage.

One source said it was unclear if the alleged plot was serious or developed or what method of attack was to be used but said the Olympics could have been the target.

The two men, aged 18 and 32, were arrested at separate residential addresses in east London, according to Scotland Yard.

A spokesman said officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command, known as SO15, raided the properties at 7am on Thursday morning.

The men were detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

  1. I am surprised there are only 2! When I lived in Newham, where the Olympic park is situated, there were 10 mosques in our road and they all gave out leaflets urging their members to bring about the downfall of the British state. I handed one in to the local cop shop, with photos of other stickers. That is 10 mosques in just one road. I have seen photos since I left and a church is now another mosque!!
