There is an ongoing investigation into the case of Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab and it would be inappropriate to comment.

The Prevent review, which will evaluate the programme's effectiveness and value for money, will include examination of the role of mosques and their governance in countering radicalisation and deterring people from supporting violent extremism. The review will be concluded by the end of this year.
