Failed anti-terror campaigns 'waste of money', Prevent strategy admits
by Andrew Hough and Duncan Gardham
Millions of pounds have been "wasted" on overseas anti-extremism projects that have failed to help stem terrorism activity in Britain, the Government will admit.
The "flawed" efforts by the previous government to focus on international projects "diverted valuable resources" away from preventing home-grown terrorism, the new Prevent strategy will concede.
The strategy, being launched on Tuesday by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will also say that such efforts also undermined attempts to "convince Muslim Communities" that "terrorism is unacceptable and wrong".
