U.K. police have arrested three men on suspicion of committing offences under the Terrorism Act 2006.

Two were arrested at Manchester Airport and one in the Accrington area in the northwest of England, Lancashire Constabulary said in a statement on its Web site.

The homes of the men are now being searched by specialist officers from the Lancashire Constabulary and Greater Manchester Counter Terrorism Unit, according to the statement.

"These types of enquiries can be complex and may take time to resolve," Chief Superintendent Andy Rhodes, Divisional Commander for Eastern Division, said in the statement.
