South African police arrest four terrorism suspects bound for Syria

JOHANNESBURG- Four South Africans attempting to fly to Syria have been arrested in Johannesburg and will face charges related to terrorism, police said on Sunday.


"We stopped them from flying to Syria and the airline concerned was also informed and they were refused access," said Hangwani Mulaudzi, spokesman for the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, widely known as "the Hawks."


The arrests were made on Saturday and the three men and one woman will appear in court on Monday, two in Johannesburg and two others at the Kagiso Magistrates Court west of Johannesburg, Mulaudzi said.
