US seeks terrorists in web worlds

Now BBCNews has been discussing the story about how the US government has begun a project to develop ways to spot terrorists who are using virtual worlds:

Codenamed Reynard it aims to recognise "normal" behaviour in online worlds and home in on anomalous activity. It is likely to develop tools and techniques for intelligence officers who are hunting terrorists and terror groups on the net or in virtual worlds.

The project was welcomed by experts tracking terror groups using the net to organise or carry out attacks. Brief details about Reynard came to light in a report sent to the US Congress by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) - which co-ordinates the work of US intelligence agencies.
