Australian FM concerned over no warning of London attacks
font size    

Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer expressed concern on Friday over the lack of intelligence or warning of terrorist attacks in London.

He said there had been intelligence about possible terrorist attacks on Heathrow Airport in the past, but he was not aware of any fresh information.

"The British didn't appear to have any specific information that at least I'm aware of in relation to this terrorist attack," he said. "And we have very close intelligence liaison with the British."

He also told Melbourne radio station 3AW that the blasts in London were more than likely the work of al-Qaeda.

At least 52 people were killed and 700 people injured when a series of bombs went off in central London during the morning rush hour on Thursday.
