Al-Qaeda ‘bid to infiltrate MI5’

BBC NEWS | UK | Al-Qaeda ‘bid to infiltrate MI5’:

Al-Qaeda sympathisers have been trying to infiltrate the British security service MI5, the BBC has learned.

Whitehall officials confirmed what some had long suspected, says BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner.

But those with al-Qaeda sympathies were weeded out during a six to eight-month vetting process, officials added.

Meanwhile anti-terrorism police probing the 7 July London bombings say people who knew the attacks were being planned would face prosecution.
