The chief of M15 has warned that the Arab Spring has provided a new generation of British-born terrorists.
This rise is a fruit of Al-Qaeda luring dozens of would-be bombers abroad to train for possible attacks in the UK.
The Director General of MI5 Jonathan Evans said that the terror network has taken advantage of instability in the region, in the wake of last year’s revolutions, to spread its influence and create new bases for attacks.
British would-be jihadis are known to be receiving training in Libya and Egypt, mirroring what has already happened in the Yemen and Somalia.
“They could return to attack the UK in what is a ‘new and worrying development’, The Telegraph quoted Evans as saying.
He also revealed that the intelligence services and police are preparing for a potential threat from extremists.
Evans warned a new terror threat has emerged from an Arab world in radical transition’.
He said while the events offered long term hope there was a ‘more immediate problem’ as Al-Qaeda has returned to its native home.
Figures last year suggested more than 100 Britons have received training by terror groups in Somalia and it is feared as many are now being prepared for terror attacks across Yemen, Egypt and Libya.
He said the network is also active in Syria and across Mali and West Africa “where the UK has political, economic and demographic ties”.

The Global media lives on an illusion. They brand the Arab spring as a movement that demands human rights and democracy.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Islamic movement wants to take over the Planet in a set of take overs. First the Arab League. Next the European political centralized powers, and finally Washington.
Many not sincere and corrupt “Christians” support the enemies of the truth.
This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.
A lot could have been said about M15. But compared to the political leaders, the spy chief seems to have more insight in the instructions of Muhammad to his faithful.
– Kill, crippled and bring the infidels into submission.
