2 Groups banned for "glorifying terrorism"

From the Guardian: "al-Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect, were yesterday named as the first extremist groups to be banned in Britain under new anti-terror laws...

The groups are the first to be targeted by the home secretary, John Reid, under anti-terror legislation outlawing extremist organisations who "glorify terrorism". Until now the home secretary's powers of proscription have been used only against organisations directly involved in terrorism."
