United Kingdom spy chief warns on threats from IS, Russia

Recall that during the meeting, Andrew Parker also turned to the topic of the Middle East.

Parker will argue that despite its heavy losses and retreat in Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State still presents a threat to Western democracies and "still aspires to direct devastating and more complex attacks".

Mr Barnier has previously declared the United Kingdom will be cut from security and defence involvement once it leaves the EU.

THE head of MI5 says it is more vital than ever that European spy agencies stand together to counter the threat Russian Federation poses to Western democracies.

The director general of MI5 Andrew Parker launched the blistering attack on Vladimir Putin's regime during a speech to European intelligence agencies in Berlin.

Mr Parker, who has a 35-year career in intelligence, will say: "In today's uncertain world we need that shared strength more than ever".

The UK suffered four deadly militant attacks past year that killed 36 people, the deadliest spate since the London "7/7" bombings of July 2005.

In 2017, the United Kingdom suffered five attacks: in March, a man drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and attempted to enter the Westminster Palace grounds; in May, an explosion went off at the Manchester Arena at the end of the concert of USA singer Ariana Grande.

Twelve terror plots have been thwarted by MI5 and police since last year's Westminster attack in London, bringing the total number of thwarted incidents since 2013 to 25.

"But its repeated choices have been to pursue that aim through aggressive and pernicious actions by its military and intelligence services".

That's particularly exciting because it also suggests that Europa may have an energy source propelling the water skyward. The Galileo data were collected in 1997 during a Europa flyby at an altitude of less than 250 miles.


The UK believes it is highly likely that the Russian State orchestrated the nerve attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury in early March.

The attack, with the novichok toxin, marked the first use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War.

Russia has denied any involvement in the attack and has challenged Britain to reveal evidence to back up its claim that the Russian state was behind it.

He also accused Russian Federation of "flagrant breaches" of worldwide rules, and criticised its invasion of Crimea and alleged interference in Western elections.

Russian officials suggested the United Kingdom had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall to retire, reports say
The three-time Pro Bowler was a cornerback for most of his career until moving to safety for his final two-plus seasons. Hall will nearly certainly end up in the Redskins Ring of Fame, as one of the greatest team players of his era.


The West, he said, should "shine a light through the fog of lies, half-truths, and obfuscation that pours out of Russia's propaganda machine".
