UK Intelligence Identified 23,000 Potential Jihadist Terrorists in Country

Recommended Posts

The UK intelligence services have spotted some 23,000 individuals with extremist views considered to pose a potential terrorist threat, media reported Saturday.

According to The Times newspaper, citing government sources, some 3,000 people of this group are probed or actively monitored by the security services, while 20,000 others are labeled as posing a "residual risk" as they have been involved in previous inquiries.

The two terrorists that perpetrated attacks that hit the United Kingdom in 2017 were classified as the "former subjects of interest" and were no longer monitored by the security services, the same report added.

The information was revealed after the UK security services faced harsh criticism over the alleged lost opportunities to prevent Monday's deadly terror act in Manchester.

The public uproar was fueled by Wednesday's media reports that the Manchester attacker Salman Abedi was known to the UK security services.
