AN AFGHAN special forces commando has been arrested by armed cops at a Manchester hotel.

The suspect – who has not been named – fled Kabul on an evacuation flight and was self isolating in the city.

Sky News understands that the raid was pre-dawn and took place around August 31 or September 1.

The Ministry of Defence have been approached for comment.

Greater Manchester Police dubbed the arrest a "Home Office investigation".

A department spokesperson said: “We do not comment on individual cases.”

Cops can keep a suspect in custody with no charge for 96 hours if they are suspected of committing a serious crime.

This number increases to 14 days if the arrest is under terrorism legislation.
