"Terrorism: first public warning from the MI5

LONDON (AP) - The british secret service, the MI5, have publicly warned against international terrorism for the first time on Friday.

"The threat remains real and serious", says the information agency on its internet website. "On several occasions, Oussama ben Laden publicly named the Great Britain and the British interests as targets on which attacks are encouraged."

These informations, traditionally reserved for the government, are mainly intended for firms. The objective of the MI5 is to inform on the measures to be taken to protect against those threats, says its general director Eliza Manningham-Buller.

The publication of these informations is accompanied by recommendations on the management of terrorist risk. It is recommended to firms, amongst others, to prevent access to their installations by any stranger, to cut dense bushes around the buildings, and to dispose of superfluous furniture."

Hopefully, it won't be useful to know...

Nice site but there's nothing urgent there. Primarily general info.

Its actually just general advice - but this time issued by an agency who might actually capture some attention. There is nothing specific - we used to have this kind of advice issued by the Met Police regarding IRA terrorism during the 70's and 80's but with the heightened profile i guess comes the higher authority.

That is right, and it doesn't make me feel afraid of anything or it doesn't alarm me, but it is actually the first time ever they come forward publicly with this kind of thing.

I said I hope it won't be useful. Sounds like the 11th of September that some people have been taking as a not serious threat earlier...

Better be careful now, it is too late afterwards...
