London: British Prime Minister David
Cameron`s office says the UK will review its scrutiny of
far-right extremist groups following the Norway killings.

Cameron`s spokesman Steve Field today said the
country`s National Security Council had asked intelligence
agencies and police to ensure they have "adequate scrutiny" of
far-right groups.

Security officials have faced some criticism over the
lack of attention devoted to the threat, as they tackle risks
posed by al Qaeda related terrorists and Irish Republican
extremists.

Last year, two people with extreme right-wing views
were convicted over a plot to poison Muslims, Jews and ethnic
minorities.

Field also confirmed police are reviewing potential
links between Anders Behring Breivik and British extremists.
