Texas synagogue siege: Teenagers arrested in Manchester released without charge


Two teenagers arrested in Manchester after a British gunman took hostages at a Texas synagogue have been released without charge.

Forty-four year old Malik Faisal Akram, a British citizen, was shot dead after a standoff with police in Colleyville near Dallas on Saturday.

The teenagers were arrested in south Manchester on Sunday evening.

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Dominic Scally, of Counter Terrorism Policing North West, said: “CTP North West is continuing to assist with the investigation which is being led by US authorities.

“Overnight, constructive meetings with colleagues from the United States have taken place.”

“As part of our enquiries, we’re also working with colleagues in other forces and Lancashire Police are working with communities in the Blackburn area to put measures in place to provide reassurance.”
