The #UnitedKingdom raised its terror threat level to “severe” on Friday in response to events in Iraq and Syria.
British Prime Minister #DavidCameron gave a statement on the decision to do so and laid out the United Kindom’s strategy.
Cameron’s remarks came just after authorities on Friday raised the terror threat level to severe, the second highest level. The decision was related to developments in Iraq and Syria, but there was no information to suggest an attack was imminent.
Cameron told reporters that while the Taliban facilitated Al Qaeda terrorism, the Islamic State group is ‘‘effectively a state run by terrorists.’’
