Terror in Manchester: 3,500 potential Muslim terrorists & 400 ISIS fighters back from Syria in UK

Mass murder and Islam. Some things just naturally go together.

THE number of potential terrorists being watched in the UK at the time of the Manchester bombing has swelled to nearly 3,500 – but our security services are using powers to monitor them LESS than they did a year ago, Express.co.uk can reveal.

Latest figures show the 3,000 potential terrorists monitored since 2015 has grown after the return of UK-born people who left to fight with ISIS.

About 400 ISIS-trained fighters are believed to have returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq.
