    LONDON: Nine of the 11 mostly Pakistani men arrested during a major anti-terror operation in northwest England earlier this month were released Tuesday, a police spokeswoman said.

    "The north-west counter-terrorism unit has released nine of those arrested as part of a national operation," a spokeswoman for Manchester police said.

    She said the men, aged between 22 and 38, had been subsequently transferred to the custody of the UK Borders Agency, which is responsible for controlling immigration into Britain.

    Two men remained in police custody.

  • They should file defamation charges against MI6 for harrasing them and British govt. should apologize to these folks. What an embarrassment for them.

  • War on terror:

    By the terrorist over the innocent for democratic business.

  • This is good news.

    I heard they released all of the 11 arrested?

    Now they should not even deport them.

    These people should file lawsuits against the govt. and take them to court.
