Britain and EU at risk of Iranian terror attacks at home, US counter-terrorism chief warns

Britain and other European nations are at risk from Iranian terror attacks on home soil and must do more to deter the regime, America’s counter-terrorism coordinator has warned.

Nathan Sales said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that Iran has carried out a slew of assassination plots in Europe in recent years and could do so again.

He praised the UK government for recently designating Hezbollah, the Shia Islamist group backed by Iran, as a terrorist organisation and urged other EU countries to match the move.
