Police investigating possible British link to suicide bombing at Syrian prison
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 10:42 AM EST
Anti-terrorism police are scouring a semi-detached house in a suburban community just outside London that media say is linked to a suicide bombing at a Syrian prison last week.
Syrian government forces have since retaken much of the area, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The BBC published a photograph of police officers standing outside the two-story home in Crawley, a commuter town down the road from London's Gatwick Airport.
Officials declined to comment on the man's identity Thursday. The government has become increasingly concerned by the issue of British Muslims traveling to Syria.
