FBI ‘warned MI5 in January that Salman Abedi was planning terror attack in UK’ – Major Screw Up

FBI ‘warned MI5 in January that Salman Abedi was planning terror attack in UK’ | The Independent

“Abedi was reportedly placed on a US terrorist watch list in 2016 after he came to the attention of intelligence agencies during an investigation into terrorist groups operating in Libya.

“In early 2017 the FBI told MI5 that Abedi belonged to a North African terror gang based in Manchester, which was looking for a political target in this country,” a security source told The Mail on Sunday….

…MI5 has faced questions over the fact that Abedi was on its radar but slipped through the net in order to carry out the attack that killed 22 people and seriously injured 64.

In response, defence officials said that at any one time they are juggling 500 terror investigations involving 3,000 subjects.”
