London: In a major cause of concern to security agencies and citizens alike, a chilling repetition of Paris-style attacks is expected in the thickly populated capital of the United Kingdom - London.
UK security agencies have been alerted to prepare themselves for 10 simultaneous attacks on London in a style similar to that of the terrorist attacks in French capital Paris November 13, 2015. 
The attack in London is suspected to be attempted by the terrorists returning from Syria. 
Special Air Services (SAS) and Metropolitan police are also undergoing training dealing with devices that have been turned into biological and chemical weapons. Army is also on standby outside London to lend support to SAS and Metropolitan police if the attacks take place.

A British minister told an English Daily, Sunday Telegraph, “We used to plan for three simultaneous attacks but Paris has shown that you need to be ready for more than that. We are ready if someone tries with seven, eight, nine, ten.”
The news of the attacks has come after the arrest of the Paris attack suspect, Salah Abdeslam, who was captured in Belgium on March 18. He is believed to be one of the main suspects of the Paris attacks which claimed more than 130 lives.
