The British police have not dismissed a number of police officers and staff whose names appear on an MI5 report on suspected Islamic extremists, the Daily Mail reported Saturday. According to the Mail, staff suspected of such ties are barred from working in "sensitive" posts and, while the police force monitors their activities, they cannot be fired because the police lacks the legal authority to do so.
