Cyber-attack 'could cripple Britain'

PUBLISHED March 22, 2005

Britain could be crippled by a cyber-terrorist attack, a former chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority warned today.

Lord Toby Harris said an attack by terrorists, such as Osama bin Laden, could bring the UK to its knees.
He warned that al-Qa'ida could engage in hi-tech internet terrorism to seriously damage the British economy.
