Britain raises terror threat level on Iraq, Syria fears

An image grab taken from a propaganda video released on March 17, 2014 by the Islamic State (IS)'s al-Furqan Media allegedly shows the group's fighters driving through the northern Syrian City of HomsBritain raised its terror threat risk level to “severe” on Friday, meaning an attack is thought to be “highly likely”, due to fears over the situation in Iraq and Syria. The move comes after the killing of US journalist James Foley, apparently by a man speaking with an English accent who belonged to the jihadist group Islamic State. While there was no intelligence to suggest that an attack on Britain is imminent, Prime Minister David Cameron said there was “no doubt in my mind” that IS had its sights set on targets in Europe. “What we are facing in Iraq now with ISIL (IS) is a greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before,” he told a press conference just after the threat level was raised.
