Report warns of 'new generation' Islamic militants radicalised in back streets
by Patrick Sawer and Patrick Hennessy
A new generation of British Islamic militants is being radicalised in back streets, counter-terrorism experts have warned.
A new report shows that the success of anti-radicalisation measures in many of Britain's mosques has pushed militants underground, making them harder to detect by both community leaders and police.
Feeding the process are jailed militants, such as Abu Hamza, who is still exerting an influence from his prison cell on impressionable Muslim youngsters susceptible to his violently anti-Western rhetoric.
