May said the government would create new laws to take on the militants, including legislation making it easier for security services to track suspects online, and find out if radical fighters are flying into Britain. She said insurance companies will be barred from providing cover for ransom payments under the new legislation. Airlines will be banned if they fail to provide information on passengers flying to Britain. Britain raised its terrorism alert to the second-highest level in August, saying an attack was now "highly likely".
