Islamist militants rapidly increasing in Sweden

STOCKHOLM The number of Islamist militants in Sweden has soared to thousands in recent years but only a few pose a security threat to society, the head of the country’s security services said on Friday.

Sweden is still in shock after five people were killed and 15 injured when a hijacked truck ploughed into a crowd on a busy shopping street and crashed into a Stockholm department store on April 7.

Police are holding an Uzbek man who has admitted to driving the vehicle.

Anders Thornberg, the head of the Swedish Security Service (Sapo), said only a handful of militants had the desire and capacity to carry out attacks . He blamed propaganda by Islamic State for the problem.

“We have never seen anything like this before,” Thornberg told national news agency TT.

He said the numbers included those who merely sympathise with violent militants to those who spread the message, recruit and collect funds.

“The growth in extremism is a challenge of historical proportions,” he said.

The biggest concentrations of militants are in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmo and Orebro, according to Sapo.

The government has tightened laws and promised more funding for police and security services . It is planning further measures, including increased CCTV surveillance.

But Thornberg said the security services faced a new environment where attacks no longer needed months of planning and preparation.

“Today, if you decide to act, you maybe buy two knives or hire a truck and drive into a crowd,” he said.

Security at the Warriors’ NBA championship parade tomorrow can detect rogue drones

Tomorrow s parade celebrating1 the Golden State Warriors championship win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals will include a security system that can detect rogue drones. Up to two million people are expected to join the festivities in Oakland, Calif, where the police department confirmed that it is working with federal and state law enforcement to secure the event. The drone detection system in place at the Warriors parade is made by Dedrone, an anti-drone security company that sells sensor and camera installations that can alert security personnel when a drone is flying overhead . Dedrone s system is also used at the Mets Citi Field baseball stadium2 in New York.

We are requesting that no drones are flown in the area of the parade, said Officer Johnna Watson, who handles media relations for the Oakland Police Department . Watson said the entire parade route and nearby areas are a no drone zone during the event .

Police and media helicopters are expected to be flying during the parade, and Watson said there s concern about keeping those aircraft safe. Dedrone s sensors are installed along the parade route . And while the system isn t designed to take a rogue drone down, it does the hard work of detecting where the small flying robot is, so security on ground can choose to jam its signal, intercept it or investigate whether or not the drone is a threat . The system can also detect if the drone is capable of carrying a potentially hazardous payload. Due to security concerns, Dedrone wouldn t share how many sensors are being installed throughout the parade route .

The company did say that its primary concern is the detection of consumer-grade drones, like those made by DJI. If a drone is detected, Watson said the Oakland Police Department will attempt to notify the operator of the flight restrictions and safety concerns. When the Warriors won the NBA championship on Monday, fans took to the streets of Oakland and San Francisco to celebrate .

Incidents were reported 3of fans climbing steet lights, setting off fireworks and breakdancing in the middle of Oakland intersections.

Royal Ascot faces ‘heightened security measures’ in the wake of terror attacks

Royal Ascot1 is facing “heightened security measures” in the wake of the UK terror attacks.

Guy Henderson, CEO of Ascot, says racegoers will experience “extensive bag, dog and physical searches” at the annual event. The race meeting is attended by The Queen2 and senior members of the royal family every day. In a statement he also warned that there will be a “stronger armed and uniformed police presence.”

The new measures have been introduced because he says the safety of revellers is paramount.

In a statement Mr . Henderson said, “There will be more extensive dog, bag and physical search procedures for everyone at all the racecourse entrances and you will notice a stronger armed and uniformed police presence throughout the site and the vicinity.

“The safety of all our racegoers is paramount and you can be assured that the racecourse works extremely closely at all times with the Police, the Security Services and our specialist advisers in implementing the appropriate security measures for your protection.”

He added: “It is inevitable that access to the racecourse this year will take longer.

“Please be prepared for this and allow sufficient time . Please also bear in mind that if you exit at any stage, you will need to pass through security to re-enter.”

And he urged racegoers not bring unnecessary bags or luggage into the racecourse. Luggage storage facilities will be provided outside of the course enclosures.

“We ask for your understanding, patience and cooperation with us and that you also inform your guests and party members of this update.

“We also ask for your vigilance on matters of security . If you see or hear anything suspicious, please bring it immediately to the attention of the Police or our Stewards,” Mr Henderson said.

Ascot Racecourse s website will contain updates on security.
