Yet another threat alert. “Govt fears election terrorism attack,” from Reuters, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
LONDON (Reuters) – Groups linked to al Qaeda may try to take advantage of the run-up to a May 5 general election to stage an attack, terrorism experts say.
There is a genuine risk of an atrocity similar to the Madrid train bombings which had a direct result on the Spanish election last year, many believe.
“We must be aware that al Qaeda will see the opportunity this year for a worldwide statement,” said the country’s most senior policeman Sir Ian Blair. “There is a threat, a very serious potential threat.”
