UK raises terror alert due to Irish dissidents

London: Britain has raised its terror
alert from Irish dissidents, saying the threat has risen to a
point where an attack on mainland Britain is "a strong
possibility."

The Home Office says the change was made Friday from
"moderate" to "substantial" the middle rung on the
government`s five-point threat scale.

The threat from international terrorism, which is
ranked on a separate scale, stands at "severe," meaning an
attack is considered highly likely.

The highest level is "critical" meaning an attack is
imminent. The government has never before released the threat
assessment of Irish groups.
