It is a matter of time before Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria launch an attack on the US or the West, according to a former head of the CIA.
Retired General Michael Hayden told CNN that the group "has the tools" to attack and it had expressed the intent to do so.
He said: "It's at a time of their choosing and it will probably come sooner rather than later..... There is no way more powerful to express their street credentials among the jihadist community than a successful attack against the West."
He added: "Isis is a very powerful local organisation and probably a reasonably powerful regional terrorist organization but it's one that has global ambitions and it has the tools."
