BRITISH security forces were last night hunting a group of Islamic terrorists intent on wreaking havoc during the Olympic Games.
Security sources have told the Sunday Express that 15 to 20 terror suspects entered Britain from France in the past week.
The warning, issued by the Renseignements Généraux, France’s equivalent to MI5, was given to British MI6 agents in Toulouse, south-west France, examining the home of extremist gunman Mohamed Merah, 23.
The security officers were searching for a UK link on the killer’s computers. According to sources French RG officials then revealed that up to 20 out of 50 known terror suspects had slipped out of France for Britain.
Last night MI5 were on a high-level alert after fears sleeper cells already based in the UK are poised to strike. Fears grew over individuals who have secured Leave to Remain status since coming to Britain at least five years ago from Iraq, Kurdistan, Afghanistan and North Africa. Most of the “cleanskins” are believed to be working for local authorities as cleaners, hospital porters or taxi drivers.
