03 Oct 08. UK terror strategy to be updated. The UK government is updating its counter-terrorism strategy to focus more on preventing the radicalisation of Muslims, the BBC has learned. Officials are increasingly aware of a threat from loners unconnected to al-Qaeda who have become radicalised. A top priority for the government’s strategy, known as Contest, will be reducing the supply of terror recruits. Working with local communities and dealing with the role of the internet will be key to the updated strategy. The government’s terrorist threat level has remained pegged at its second highest rating – severe – since last summer. (Source: BBC)
