The statement continued: "The men are aged 26, 27, 36, 40, and 50, and were arrested ... at [a] business premises in central London."
The men -- reported to be of Arabic origin by Sky News -- were taken to a central London police station to be interviewed by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Counter Terrorism Command.
