Cameron accused of putting Britain at risk of terror attack after agreeing to help French fight Al-Qaeda militants in Mali

David Cameron today defended being the 'first out of the blocks' to offer help to France in fighting Al Qaeda-linked militants in Mali amid claims it puts Britain at risk of a terror strike.

The Prime Minister insisted it was in Britain's interests to provide two RAF C-17 Globemaster cargo planes to the French forces.

He has been warned that the decision to transport foreign troops and equipment to the war zone could provoke reprisals on UK streets. Mr Cameron insisted that British combat troops would not join the military mission to the west African nation.
