London - British police say they are questioning a foreign student arrested at Birmingham Airport on suspicion of a terrorism offence.

West Midlands Police said on Tuesday that the 22-year-old man was arrested after arriving at the central England airport on a flight from Dubai.

He was being questioned on Tuesday on suspicion of possessing "a document likely to be of use to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".

Police say the document was found on the suspect, who is in Britain on a student visa, when he arrived on Monday evening.

    . Due to the suspect's lack of description, I got twenty bucks says he's Moslem. Again. Scratch a terrorist and you find a Moslem. If this keeps up, before too long it'll be "Scratch a Moslem and you find a terrorist". The 'peaceful' moderates of Islam have got themselves a public relations nightmare on their hands. They better do something about it. .

    Why don't these wannabe terrorists go back to their own backward countries and stop trying to kill innocent people in the name of God.
