Britain is at 'very significant risk' from a terror attack by extremists inspired by ISIS jihadis, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond warned today. David Cameron met Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in Downing Street, where he vowed the UK would do 'everything we can' to stop the flow of foreign fighters who were travelling to join ISIS and cause 'mayhem'. Speaking in No 10, Mr Cameron said: 'The threat from extremist terror you face in Iraq is also a threat we face here in the United Kingdom. Later Mr Abadi will join representatives from 21 countries, including US secretary of state John Kerry and French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, for talks which will focus on military support for fighters battling against ISIS - also known as... Ahead of the meeting, Mr Hammond stressed the danger of terror attack in the UK by people inspired by events in Iraq and Syria. 'There's a very significant risk of an Isil-inspired attack being planned and, if we are not successful in intercepting it, executed by Isil sympathisers who live in the UK but are inspired by what is going on in Iraq and Syria.
Forty names, games, teams and minutiae making news this college football bowl season (interim coaches sold separately):. Now the end is in sight, so we're willing to embrace the mangy likes of the Heart of Dallas Bowl, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and the Military Bowl – because even bad college football is better than no college football at all. Remember that, when you're trying to decide whether to carve out time for Navy (1) vs. Middle Tennessee (2). And, of course, it gives us something to bet on. Bowl pools are as much a part of the holidays as over-crowded malls and endless phone... But caveat emptor: readers who have used The Dash's bowl picks in their pools in years past have tended to lose money. New Mexico Bowl (3) : Washington State vs. Colorado State, Saturday. The New Mexico Bowl has become the improbable traditional kickoff to bowl season – because, really, what says holiday football better than a pair of six-loss teams duking it out in Albuquerque. Cougars haven't been to a bowl game in 10 years, and this is another chance to get out of Pullman. Rams haven't been bowling in five years. Best New Mexico Bowl Ever: Arizona 49, Nevada 48 in 2012. Wildcats scored two touchdowns in the final minute to cap a 17-point, fourth-quarter rally.
