Three men and one woman were arrested in the central city of Birmingham on Thursday night and one man was arrested a London’s Gatwick Airport early Friday, the U.K.’s West Midlands Police said in a statement.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police would not say specifically whether the detentions were linked to arrests in France and Belgium relating to the Brussels and Paris attacks, only telling NBC News that they had “followed on from recent arrests in Europe.”
