Pressure on extremist groups will continue, says minister.

BANNED Islamist groups promoting terrorism in Cardiff will be kept under a watchful eye, the Government has confirmed. Cardiff South and Penarth's Labour MP Stephen Doughty urged Conservative Home Office minister James Brokenshire to ensure recently banned organisation al-Muhajiroun did not reform under a different name in future. In Parliament on Monday Mr Doughty said: "They are not welcome in Cardiff by either the Muslim community or the wider community."

Mr Brokenshire said: "We have made further changes to proscription in terms of aliases related to al-Muhajiroun, and have added the names of other terrorist organisations.

"We will keep that focus and keep the issue under review."
