A 45-year-old woman in north London was held on suspicion of disseminating a terrorist publication and supporting a proscribed organisation on Wednesday morning.

A man, aged 49, was arrested in east London on suspicion of disseminating a terrorist publication.

They are currently being held at a police station in south London where they remain pending further enquiries.

Offficers are currently searching the addresses in north and east London.

The arrests were carried out by Scotland Yard’s Counter-Terrorism Command.

They are linked to the distribution of a magazine that allegedly glorifies acts of terrorism and invites support for the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party (DHKP-C).

It is part of a Marxist terrorist movement that has killed police officers, soldiers and dozens of civilians since the late 1970s.

The extremists carried out a number of assassinations and suicide bombings and are classed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the US and the European Union.
