(Newser) – Counter-terrorism police have visited British nursery schools in a bid to identify radicalized toddlers. "Radicalization can take place from the age of 4," reads a letter from police urging community groups to report any developing jihadists in their midsts. The Shadow Home Secretary condemned the policy, saying it “alienates even more people." But a police official recently testified that a 7-year-old was groomed by extremists, though most "radicalization targets" are 15 to 24 years old, reports the Times of London.
