UK Churches on terror alert as French priest murder. ISIS warns London "next to be attacked"


























UK Churches are now on terror alert after images threatening attacks and other major cities were posted on Telegram, a messaging app used by jihadis.

One of the pictures shows the image of New York’s Statue of Liberty in flames with the inscription "Washington Soon".

British counter-terror police have now “circulated specific advice” to churches across the UK amid fears of a similar attack.

According to Neil Basu, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, "There is no specific intelligence relating to attacks against the Christian community in the UK.

"However, as we have seen, Daesh and other terrorist groups have targeted Christian as well as Jewish and other faith groups in the West and beyond.

"Following recent events in France, we are reiterating our protective security advice to Christian places of worship and have circulated specific advice today. We are also taking this opportunity to remind them to review their security arrangements as a precaution.

"While the threat from terrorism remains unchanged at severe, we urge the public to be vigilant."

This threat is coming a few hours after a French priest was murdered in the city of Normandy.
