ISIS terrorists are planning to use drones to spray nuclear material over Western cities in a horrific dirty bomb attack, David Cameron has warned.
The Prime Minister warned the dangers of ISIS terrorists getting hold of nuclear material was “only too real.”
“The issue of nuclear security and the security of nuclear materials, particularly when it comes to the problems of international terrorism, the concept of terrorists and nuclear materials coming together – which is obviously a very chilling prospect – and something in the light of the Belgian attacks, we know is a threat that is only too real.”
“We have already seen ISIS trying to look at whether they can get their hands on low-level crop-using-type drones,” one British official told The Telegraph.
Video footage has emerged showing ISIS already using other types of drones and the threat was deemed so serious that world leaders were asked to take part in war games to plan how they would respond.
The Prime Minister said, “We know the terrorists we face today would like to kill as many people as they possibly could, using whatever materials they can get their hands on.’
Speaking before war gaming what was dubbed a ‘doomsday scenario’, Mr Cameron told the Daily Mail: “So many summits are about dealing with things that have already gone wrong and we are trying to put right. This is a summit about something we are trying to prevent.”
During the nuclear summit it emerged that U.S. commandos have already been trained to seize and disable radioactive bombs, and Mr Cameron announced that Britain would hire 1,000 more armed police and deploy counter-terrorism units in cities outside London to help counter any future attack.
