Coded mail bar to bail
August 15, 2009
Five men arrested in an anti-terror operation but never charged were refused bail because they exchanged coded emails, officials said yesterday.
Each has been in custody since they were picked up in a series of raids across the North-West in April.
The Government is trying to deport the men, all Pakistanis, who were refused bail last month.
No explosives were found but detainee Shoaib Khan, 27, is said to have emailed an al-Qaeda man with words "most likely" referring to terror acts.
