Man questioned over mosque bomb threat
A MAN has been arrested by counter-terrorism officers over a bomb threat sent to a mosque.
A 43-year-old man, from Plymouth, was arrested at around 8am on Friday by officers from the North East Counter Terrorism Unit.
He was being questioned on Friday afternoon after a letter was sent to Jamia Masjid Abu Bakr on Russell Street, Eastwood, on Monday, August 1.
The letter read: “Next time it will be a bomb, you Muslim scum” and was signed with 1488 — believed to be Nazi numerals.
