Tony Blair gives 'radical Islam' warning

Help

Tony Blair has described radical Islam as the greatest threat facing the world in a BBC World Service interview.

The former prime minister said he believed those subscribing to radical Islam thought whatever was done in the name of their cause was justified.

Mr Blair said his views changed after the 11 September attacks, when he realised "if they could, they would use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons".
