Terror Threat Worst in his Career — UK Intelligence Head

Share

Police continue to cordon off an area after responding to terrorist attacks on London Bridge and Borough Market where 7 people were killed and at least 48 injured last night. The head of M15, Andrew Parker, said 20 plots had been stopped in the past four years and there was "more terrorist activity coming at us, more quickly" and that it can also be "harder to detect".

In a somewhat rare public appearance yesterday, Andrew Parker, the director-general of the Security Service in the United Kingdom, said terrorists were taking advantage of the quickening pace of technology to plan deadly attacks in days.

Britain's top domestic intelligence officer has warned that Britain is under unprecedented threat from Islamist terrorists, and says that 20 plots have been foiled in the past four years, while future successful attacks are inevitable.

As part of his speech in London, Parker said: "No company wants to provide terrorists with explosive precursors, social media platforms don't want to host bomb making videos and communications providers don't want to provide the means of terrorists planning beyond the sight of MI5".

Hickey didn't hear from the guard afterward and announced to a scrum of reporters that night that Campos had canceled interviews. He was noticeably emotional in the interview - routinely being patted on the back by Schuck and comforted by DeGeneres.

Three major terror attacks have taken place in the country since March.

He cited a record number of terrorism-related arrests, including 379 during the first six months of 2017. "Many more will have been prevented by the early interventions we and the police make", Parker said.

The number of people arrested on suspicion of jihadi activities in the European Union almost doubled in two years, according to a report released in June by European police agency Europol.
