UK counter-terrorism strategy needs to refocus on Islamism -review

LONDON, Feb 8 (Reuters) - Britain's counter-terrorism programme "Prevent" must refocus its efforts more on the threat posed by militant Islamism after becoming too concerned with right-wing extremism, an independent review of the often-criticised strategy concluded on Wednesday.

"Prevent" is a key strand of Britain’s security apparatus, which was brought in after the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States with the aim of stopping radicalisation and preventing people from going on to commit acts of violence.
