Lyes Outiren, 44, a French-Algerian man of Newquay, Cornwall who was arrested in November 2013, admitted to possessing terrorist materials, including bomb-making instructions, and to disseminating an al Qaeda publication. Security was stepped up at UK-France border ports following this week’s terrorist attacks in France. The head of MI5 warned that al Qaeda and the Islamic State are planning attacks against the West, and said UK agencies had foiled three deadly plots in the UK in recent months. Chancellor Osborne said addressing terrorism is a national priority, and noted that the government has allocated £100 million to monitoring British travelers to Syria and Iraq.
