(LONDON) — Seven individuals in Britain have been arrested on suspicion of funding terrorism.
Six men and one woman ranging from 30- to 49-years of age were taken into custody Tuesday morning at four addresses across London, Coventry and Cardiff, and are being held at a police station in London.
The arrests are part of an investigation into a network suspected of exporting the stimulant khat — which is legal in Britain — to the U.S., where it’s classified as a controlled substance.
