Breitbart News Network reports today that sources in the United Kingdom’s government center known as Whitehall stated that MI5 has confirmed that 3,000 violent Islamic extremists are in the country. In addition, security services have identified 350 Islamic State militants who have returned to Britain from Syria. According to the report, many militants can not be prosecuted because the means in which they have been identified was obtained covertly and may be inadmissible in court. Also, the sources could be endangered if the evidence is disclosed. There is a concern that the returning militants could radicalize and encourage Muslims to commit terrorist acts in the UK or become fighters in Syria.
