MPs warn of threat from Iran

The committee's annual report, published yesterday, said: "There is a possibility of an increased threat to UK interests from Iranian state-sponsored terrorism should the diplomatic situation deteriorate."

The report said Britain continued to face a "serious and sustained threat" from terrorism, most significantly from al-Qa'ida.

It also criticised the Government's decision to merge the posts of security and intelligence coordinator and chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee.
