Guess How Many Are Here

ENEMY WITHIN: 23,000 potential jihadis HERE but authorities admit they can't monitor all

The number of potential UK-based terrorists on the radar of the British security services is as high as 23,000, it has emerged.

By PUBLISHED:  Mon, Jun 5, 2017

The figure is more than six times the figure previously released by the Home Office at the time of last month's Manchester bombing.
Then, it was revealed the security services had 500 live investigations into more than 3,000 suspected radical jihadis, including about 400 people who have remarkably been allowed to return to our shores after fighting with terror group Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.
But, it has since emerged a further 20,000 radical Islamists have been considered a "person of interest" to the security services at anyone time, according to a security services source.
It is not clear over which timescale the figure relates to.
But, the news has led to fears there are simply not enough resources for our security forces and counter terror police to monitor all their activities at anyone time.
A Whitehall source said 18 terror plots in the UK have been foiled since 2013, including five since the London terror attack in March.
