'Threats to UK security' detained

BBC reports Ten foreign nationals who the Home Office says pose a threat to national security have been detained in the UK, pending deportation. The Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada and at least two others previously detained in Belmarsh Prison without charge are believed to be among those arrested. The raids follow an agreement between the UK and Jordan that deportees would not be persecuted. The arrests were made in London, Luton, Leicestershire and the West Midlands. Those held are now in the custody of the prison service. Home Secretary Charles Clarke announced the detentions, but did not reveal names.

Please make sure they don't come here (although if you want to send them to Gitmo that would be ok)
