A suspected al-Qaida terrorist was arrested after he traveled close to London’s Olympic Park area five times in a single day, the Daily Mail reported.

The alleged breaches of a court order took place in April and May. They are considered the most serious security breach to hit the Olympic Park yet, the Daily Mail reported.

Authorities fear the 24-year-old Somali man — suspected of trying to fight for the Taliban in Afghanistan — was casing the site for an attack at the Olympic site, the Daily Mail reported.

British authorities said he is tied to a group of six British nationals who received terror training from Saleh Nabhan, an al-Qaida leader killed in a raid by American Navy Seals in 2009, the Daily Mail reported.

He is one of nine suspected risks to national security who are subject to terrorism prevention measures which curb movements, computer use and set limits on who terrorism suspects can meet with, according to the Daily Mail. The suspect, who is known as “CF” is being prosecuted for breaking conditions of the order.

The Olympic security scare comes after two Muslim converts were arrested last month on suspicion of plotting an attack on the Olympic canoeing venue, the Daily Mail reported.

And just last week, 14 terror-related arrests were made in Britain, including a white Muslim convert who allegedly planned to carry out a major attack at the Olympics.
