Al-Qaeda 'still a threat to UK'
Victim Graham Berkeley

Al-Qaeda still poses a terror threat to the UK, the government warns, as it releases an official list of the Britons who died in the 11 September attacks.

In a document published on Monday by the Cabinet Office, the government said it had concluded the terrorist network was still a security threat and Britain was not immune to attack.

The document - entitled The United Kingdom And The Campaign Against International Terrorism (Progress Report) - summarises the UK's security response to the events of 11 September.

There is no room for complacency

Government report

In its conclusions it warns: "A great deal has been achieved since 11 September 2001.

"However, there is no room for complacency."

The report concluded the UK was now better prepared for an attack, more aware of the threat and how to deal with it, and better prepared to deal with the aftermath of an attack.

But, it added, there was "still a great deal to be done".


"Despite the impact of the campaign so far on Al-Qaeda and other extremist groups, it is clear they retain the capability and intention to mount attacks and that UK interests may be a target," said the report.

Meanwhile an official list of British victims of the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York has been released for the first time.

The 67 British victims - plus 16 foreign nationals with close UK ties - were named by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
