Interpol worried about spike in extremist websites
(AP) – 1 day ago
PARIS — The chief of Interpol says the "skyrocketing" number of extremist websites is making it easier for terrorists to recruit middle class youth around the world.
Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble says terrorist recruiters are exploiting the Web to target vulnerable young people who are "not on the radar of law enforcement."
He says fighting this kind of terrorist recruitment is especially difficult because viewing websites is not necessarily criminal. (Emphasis supplied, MBV)
Noble said the number of extremist websites tracked by police was 12 in 1998 and 4,500 in 2006.
He spoke Tuesday at a closed-door conference of world police chiefs in Paris. Interpol released his comments in a statement.
