UK to start issuing far-right terrorism alerts

Source: The Guardian

The UK is to start issuing official threat-level warnings for far-right terrorism amid rising concerns about white supremacist murder attempts, the Guardian has learned.

The threat levels will be issued following assessments by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), an elite Whitehall unit that already produces similar warnings for Islamist and Ireland-related terror.

Fridayís attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, when 50 Muslims were murdered as they prayed, allegedly by a white supremacist gunman, have triggered fresh concerns about whether the threat from the extreme right is being taken seriously enough.

Combating far-right violence was once the responsibility of the police but top-level plots and suspects are now being tackled by Britainís domestic intelligence agency, MI5. Public order issues and hate crime will remain with the police, and JTACís formal assessment of the far-right threat is expected to start this year.

1. I'm glad they are getting ready. It needs to be met head-on and now.
