Welsh terror camps

The week's news at a glance.

Brecon Beacons, U.K.

British police arrested 14 people this week in an investigation of alleged terrorist training camps in rural Britain. An unnamed counterterrorism official told the London Observer that training camps were believed to be located in remote areas of Wales and Scotland. At least one of them used to be run by jailed cleric Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook-handed radical who preached jihad for years at a prominent London mosque. The camps offered firearms training as well as indoctrination. It’s unclear whether the four men who bombed the London Underground last year attended such training, but two of them are known to have gone on whitewater rafting trips in Wales.
