UK Terror Arrests: Thousands of Suspects


As British police continue raids in London and the suburbs - latest reports describe around 100 police surrounding and searching an Islamic school near Crowborough, East Sussex - Peter Clarke, head of the Metropolitan Police anti-terror branch, has spoken of  "thousands of suspects":

The threat from homegrown terrorism is increasing in Britain, he told the BBC in an interview to be broadcast Sept. 3, an advance transcript said.

"What we've learnt since 9/11 is that the threat is not something that's simply coming from overseas into the United Kingdom," Clarke said. "What we've learned, and what we've seen all too graphically and all too murderously, is that we have a threat which is being generated here within the United Kingdom."
