Paul Cruickshank – Author of Pocket Issue, Al Qaeda: the current threat – wrote yesterday in The Guardian about the likely origin of the Mumbai terrorists. Many reporters claim that some of the attackers have British roots. Cruickshank traces the links between some of India’s Islamic terrorst groups and Al Qaeda, and in his book he outlines the number of recruits from the UK who have been both radicalised by Al Qaeda linked groups and received training in North West Pakistan. Paul has also been commenting on CNN this week.
