Police warn anti-Islam, anti-immigrant forces could seek alliance with far right

The warning comes in the ministry’s quarterly report on extremism. As regards left wing extremism, the report highlighted the torching of a police car amid around half a dozen other attacks on police property which followed a clamp down on ‘revolutionary cells’ during April.
