Cameron says Iraq militants plan to attack Britain
(06-18 21:00)

Prime Minister David Cameron warned that militants making advances in Iraq and fighting in Syria were also planning to attack Britain.
''I'd disagree with those people who think this is nothing to do with us and if they want to have some sort of extreme Islamist regime in the middle of Iraq that won't affect us -- it will,'' Cameron told the House of Commons.
''The people in that regime, as well as trying to take territory, are also planning to attack us here at home in the United Kingdom.''
He was speaking before chairing a meeting of the government's National Security Council on the militant offensive in Iraq, which is being spearheaded by jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
At a news conference on Tuesday following talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Cameron said that ISIL in Syria and now Iraq is ''the most serious threat to Britain's security that there is today.''--AFP
