BRITISH cops are to be deployed to trouble hotspots to stop the rising threat of terrorism in Africa, we can reveal.
Law enforcement agencies will have access to the £14 billion foreign aid budget to target the violent extremism that can threaten the UK at home.
Cabinet Minister Penny Mordaunt has revealed our experts will “build stronger police forces and set up British serious and organised crime units” in developing countries.
She says the help intends to focus on the “root causes” which help fuels the terror networks.
Training up foreign cops will help stop organised gangs to move funds across borders and seize assets to stop gangs from operating.
