London, July 25 (IANS) British security forces might not be able to stop a Norway-style terror attack, Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.

Hague said it was harder to prevent atrocities by determined individuals than sophisticated networks such as the Al Qaeda, the Daily Express reported.

“We will check that enough attention is being given to all forms of terrorism. You have to have as many defences in place as you possibly can.”

“But even then of course - and it’s important to stress this - you cannot guarantee being able to prevent every attack or every kind of attack,” Hague was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Muslim leaders in Britain said they had tightened security at all mosques across the country after it was revealed that Norway attack accused Anders Breivik was against Muslim immigration to Europe.
