Three men have been arrested in Britain as part of an investigation into international terrorism, London’s Scotland Yard said on Saturday.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Anti-Terrorist Branch arrested two of the men late on Friday at separate addresses in Chatham, Kent, southeastern England and Shepherds Bush, west London.

A third man was arrested on Saturday morning after he voluntarily went to a London police station.

The men, all in their 20s, were detained on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism. The investigation is separate from the probes into the London bombings in July, police said.

Police were searching the Chatham and Shepherds Bush addresses in addition to a property in the Paddington area in west London.

No hazardous materials have been found, although police said the searches would continue.
