Terror attacks spark alerts


Although the Government continues to rate the domestic risk here as low, meaning an attack is considered possible but not likely, Prime Minister John Key has disclosed that one or two individuals among about 40 on a terrorist watchlist are deemed so threatening they are being monitored every minute of the day.

“It only takes one person to do something crazy,” he said.

Auckland-based intelligence expert Dr Paul Buchanan, a former terrorist profiler for the CIA, described the US alert as an acknowledgment of the global reach of Isis through social media and said transport hubs such as Britomart could not be ruled out as prime targets
