Posted on 01/20/2022 4:50:37 AM PST by EBH
British police said Thursday they arrested two people in connection with a hostage-taking at a synagogue in Texas.
Counter Terrorism Police North West said one man was arrested Thursday in Birmingham, central England, and another in the northern English city of Manchester. They were being held for questioning and had not yet been charged.
The force said it was continuing to support U.S. authorities with their investigation into Saturday's hostage incident. Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old British citizen, took four people hostage at a Texas synagogue in a 10-hour standoff that ended in his death. All four hostages were unharmed.
Police did not disclose details about the two people detained Thursday. British police do not release names and details of detainees until they are charged.
On Sunday, police arrested British teenagers in Manchester as part of the investigation. They were later released without charge.
Akram was from Blackburn, an industrial city in northwest England. His family said he had been “suffering from mental health issues.”
Akram entered the United States on a tourist visa about two weeks earlier and spent time in Dallas-area homeless shelters before the attack at Congregation Beth Israel, in the suburb of Colleyville.
The FBI has called the incident “a terrorism-related matter" targeting the Jewish community.
British media, including the Guardian and the BBC, have reported that Akram was investigated by the domestic intelligence service MI5 as a possible “terrorist threat” in 2020, but authorities concluded he posed no danger, and the investigation was closed.

I’m sure the fbi will quickly round up his US-based helpers.
A crime occurs in Texas and British police spring into action begin making arrests.
Meanwhile, the FBI is like “meh”.
If it wasn’t mental illness or white racist terrorism, the FBI will never figure out this guys motive for taking Jews hostage at a synagogue demanding the freedom of an Islamic terrorist. It’s a puzzle fer sure.
“ British men”. No doubt defendants of Cromwell.
How did he get a gun?
I believe they are his sons.
Now, how did he enter the USA? , yet was staying in a homeless shelter. Does not compute. Did he cross the border during the on going South Texas Invasion? Was he transported from the border by Slo Joe's transportation company? (Hustling the Voters) There are a lot of questions that the news will never say a word about.
“How did he get a gun?”
Yes, while living in a homeless shelter.
C’mon man. It was a lone , mentally deficient , nut. FBI says so. It cannot , will not , no not ever, be an organized, anti semitic, mark 1 mod 1 terrorist, sent here to do EXACTLY what he did by our “friends” the Brits.
Always having to go outside our media to get to the truth.
Biden’s terrorist plans.
Terrorist shot dead after taking hostages at Texas synagogue is named as 44-year-old from Blackburn: Gunman Malik Akram's 'devastated' brother condemns attack and blames 'mental health issues' as Liz Truss slams 'act of anti-Semitism'
Easy. Just buy one out of the trunk of a punk. Gun control works that way, even in Texas, which hardly has any other than federal.
He meant to hold the rabbi hostage, and make him call another Jooo! rabbi, who would pull the strings that all Jooos! have, being Jooos!, to spring Madmadam AlQaida. Dumb-ass plan that would require the collaboration of fellow dumbasses who believe this crap. So sons is likely.
The partisan media shills and the rest of the limo lib left is deeply saddened.
Yes, he did not look like he was in the honor society. I’d be surprised if the sons even attended school.
These monsters have destroyed or are in the process of destroying anything good in countries around the world.
Malik Faisal Akram.
