Fourteen men were arrested in south London by antiterrorist police. The arrest is part of an investigation into a network of terrorist training camps
in Britain. The men are being questioned in regard to laws which ban the glorification of acts of terrorism. There is suspicion that there is mentor
figure who is radicalizing and training young men in preparation for terrorist acts. The suspected training camp is on a private school grounds which
spans fifty-four acres and nine students. Seventeen homes were also raided as part of the same investigation.
The men were among 14 arrested on Friday as part of an investigation into an alleged network of terror training camps in Britain which include the
lakeland spot and the grounds of the Jameah Islamiyah school in East Sussex.
They are being questioned under controversial new laws which came in this year banning the glorification of acts of terrorism, amid suspicion that
among the 14 there is a mentor figure who is radicalising and training young men in preparation for terrorist acts.
The Guardian revealed last month that the security services were monitoring a group of up to 20 suspects, some with known terrorist connections,
taking part in outdoor training in the Lake District and elsewhere.

At this point the only information this story reveals is that the men have been arrested and are being questioned. But I do think this points to the
ability of terrorists in the world to set up training centers. All in really takes to set up a training center in a target country is money, and the
person willing to do the work. The terrorists who come from the oil rich countries, or are being supports by a state, lack neither money, nor a
volunteer. It will be interesting to see what comes of all this, but it may be a very long time before we get any of the information. The
infestation on the private school may last for weeks.
