Terrorists at large in UK?

daily times monitor | April 12, 2009

LONDON: British counter-terrorism police believe that a team of Pakistan-born Al Qaeda suspects is still at large in the UK.

It is feared that as many as three dozen potential terrorists may have slipped through security nets and may be waiting to strike.

A police official told The People: “We think there were two teams on this – one doing the preparation and another to come in right at the last minute to carry it out.

The worry is that the second team may be in possession of explosive material. Officers are looking at the possibility of a ‘dead drop’ to transfer material.

“If there are two teams, it is a clever tactic. It means any compromise in the first team leaves the second free to finish the job.”
