LONDON - Muslim groups which refuse to tackle militancy will have their funding cut in an overhaul of counter-terrorism policy, the British government is due to announce on Tuesday.

More money will be spent on identifying threats in prisons, universities and the health service under a revision of the 63 million pound Prevent program.

The review of the scheme, launched by the British Labor government in 2007 to stop the growth of home-grown terrorism, was ordered after it was deemed to have failed to produce any discernible security benefits.

Home Secretary Minister Theresa May will announce the policy changes to parliament later.

She has already said that up to 20 organizations funded under the program over the last three years could have their funding withdrawn.
