Britain needs more international terror information sharing: Brown

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Sunday that Britain needs more international sharing of information about possible terrorist suspects, according to Sky News reports.

"We do now need more information flowing internationally about who are potential terrorists and who are potential suspects," he told Sky News television, as he traveled to flood-affected areas in Britain.

Brown's comments came the day after the second anniversary of the July 7 suicide bombing in London, and in the wake of the recently raised state of terror alert in Britain.

"I want the system that we are trying to expand between Europe, a system whereby we know who are potential terrorist suspects," he said, "Then we may have a better idea... about the dangers and the risks we face."

"I think it is very important that we tighten this up and it is something we are looking at as a matter of urgency," he added.

Meanwhile, Admiral Sir Alan West, former navy chief who was appointed by Brown as a security minister last week, said the battle against the terror threat posed to Britain could last for 15 year, according to a Sunday Telegraph report.

The new security minister said the overall danger facing the country, from both home-grown and foreign terrorists, was at its greatest-ever level and that a new approach was badly needed to tackle it, the newspaper said.

On Saturday, the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) issued a statement, telling Muslims it was their "Islamic duty" to cooperate with police to ensure Britain's safety.
