White supremacist group, Atomwaffen Division, banned in UK

The white supremacist group, Atomwaffen Division, has today become a proscribed terrorist organisation in the UK, with National Socialist Order listed as its alias, following an Order, which was laid in Parliament on Monday (19 April), coming into force.

This means that members of Atomwaffen Division or those who invite support for the group could be jailed for up to 10 years.

The group and its alias have now been added to the list of proscribed organisations.
