British Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday that police in the United Kingdom may get new, temporary powers to seize the passports of British nationals fighting in Syria and Iraq who are attempting to return to the United Kingdom to conduct terrorist operations.
However it is not yet clear whether the proposal to strip returning British nationals of their passports will be accepted by legislators.
Late last week, Britain raised its terror threat level from “substantial” to “severe,” meaning that a terrorist attack in the U.K. is considered highly likely, although the government has said there is no evidence to suggest an attack is imminent.
Separately, British police confirmed as a hoax Monday a message that circulated on social media over the weekend that the London Underground tube network would be the subject of an imminent attack.
The message briefly raised traveler anxiety.
