London, Sep 5 (IANS) Four British soldiers, suspected to be part of a neo-Nazi cell, have been arrested in Britain, police said on Tuesday.

The men are a 22-year-old from Birmingham, a 32-year-old from Powys, a 24-year-old from Ipswich and a 24-year-old from Northampton. They have been held under anti-terror laws, BBC reported.

The four, being held at a West Midlands police station, are alleged to be members of National Action, a banned neo-Nazi youth organisation considered a terrorist entity by the British government.

Confirming the arrests, an Army spokesperson said: “This is now the subject of a civilian police investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further.”

Police said the operation was launched based on intelligence.
