Over 500 counterterrorism investigations

Thirty-six people have been killed in five separate terror attacks in the UK this year. Opportunities to stop the most fatal of those — a suicide bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in May — were missed, according to the report by senior barrister David Anderson published on Tuesday.

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi, who killed 22 people, had been a "subject of interest" to British police in the months before the attack, but was not put under investigation.

"On two separate occasions in the months prior to the attack, intelligence was received by MI5 whose significance was not fully appreciated at the time," the report said.

The report noted that while counterterrorism police and MI5 had gotten most things right, "it is conceivable that the Manchester attack in particular might have been averted had the cards fallen differently."

"Policing and our colleagues in the fight against terrorism will continue to learn and improve," Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said in a statement Tuesday.

"There are currently well over 500 counterterrorism investigations, involving more than 3,000 subjects of interest, along with a growing pool of more than 20,000 individuals who have previously been the subject of terrorism investigations," the statement said.

"These investigations cover the full range of terrorist activity, from attack planning to activity that supports or facilitates terrorism — but a significant proportion involve potential attack-planning threats. The tempo is more intense than ever."
