LONDON (AP) — British police are questioning a Pakistani student arrested at Birmingham Airport on suspicion of a terrorism offense, the West Midlands force said Tuesday.

West Midlands Police said the 22-year-old man was arrested after arriving at the central England airport on a flight from Dubai.

He was being questioned on suspicion of possessing "a document likely to be of use to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism."

Police said the document was found on the suspect, who is in Britain on a student visa, when he arrived on Monday evening.

They said the man is from Pakistan and studying at a "fully accredited institution" in Britain.
