MI5 chief Andrew Parker told Theresa May and her senior ministers that the defeat of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria did not mean the terror threat was over, warning that social media was being used to encourage attacks in the UK and elsewhere.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd added that the pace of attack planning has increased 'significantly' over the past year.

Mr. Valls, who served under Socialist President François Hollande, made his comments in a recent interview in which he stressed the importance of helping moderate Muslims combat radical Islamic extremism, L’Express reports.
'To say that Islam and Islamism have nothing to do with it is to deny any responsibility to act to our fellow Muslims. We must help them, we must help them to fight within themselves these totalitarian ideologies of Salafism or the Muslim Brotherhood,' Valls said.

A £1,500-a-year Muslim girls’ school has been given the lowest grading after a series of failings including not providing toilet paper for 'cultural reasons'.

On the issue of toilets, staff insisted loo roll was available at reception on request, but not provided as a matter of course “because [the pupils] are Asian.” However, some pupils told inspectors they avoided the toilets for this reason.
Inspectors also criticised the fact there was a lack of soap in the lavatories. There were also no showers on the premises.
