Terror moles at the Met
MI5 target four cops in undercover op
By Ryan Sabey
A NEST of Al-Qaeda terror spies has been uncovered in Britain's top police force.
MI5 agents have identified FOUR London Met officers after searching for a cell of fanatics passing Scotland Yard's secrets.
The spooks homed in on the officers in the past few weeks after working with anti-terror police to uncover "sleeper" agents in London's Met.
The News of the World has obtained the names of two of the men pinpointed during a painstaking Spooks-style undercover operation.
All four are Asians living in the capital and are feared to have links both with Islamic extremists in Britain and worldwide terror groups—including al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The suspected spies are believed to have used methods similar to those employed by the IRA in the 1970s as they infiltrated the police and the Army in Northern Ireland.
A Scotland Yard source told us: "If there are people within the police force feeding information to terror groups this needs to be stopped.
"Since the names came to light there has been a non-stop effort to find out everything about their backgrounds."
MI5 chiefs believe the suspected moles have been planted as sleepers—agents under deep cover—to keep al-Qaeda informed of anti-terror raids.
