Iran-backed terrorists could carry out attacks in UK - report

Terror cells supported by Iran are "ready to strike" targets in the United Kingdom, The Telegraph reported citing British intelligence sources. The potential attacks would be carried out as a result of a crisis following an incident in which Iran seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.

According to senior intelligence officers, "Iran ranks behind only Russia and China as the nation state posing the greatest threat to Britain’s national security." The sources explained that Iran funded sleeper cells "across Europe," operated by groups with ties to Lebanon-based Islamist militants Hezbollah.
