A 25-year-old man being questioned over explosions at three mosques in Walsall, Tipton and Woverhampton has been arrested “for a further act of terrorism” in connection with the murder of pensioner Mohammed Saleem.
Mohammed Saleem Chaudhry, 75, was stabbed three times in the back as he walked home from a mosque in Small Heath, Birmingham in April.
Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale, of West Midlands Police, said: “The murder of Mohammed Saleem now forms part of the wider West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit Investigation.”
