Revealed: 20 al-Qaeda suspects on Scots hit-list
BRITISH security services have compiled a ‘hit-list’ of 20 al-Qaeda terrorist suspects who are living in Scotland and said to be connected with a plot to unleash mass murder on the streets of the UK.

The dossier, compiled by MI5 and Special Branch, contains the names of more than 80 alleged extremists across Britain whom security services allege were involved in a plan to kill, using the deadly poison ricin.

The 20 suspects living north of the Border are all Muslims and based in the Central Belt. Some are said to be British citizens.
