Millennium death wish cults put the Dome under siege

By David Bamber and James Langton in New York

Scotland Yard and the FBI are mounting a major security operation to guard against cults staging mass suicides or terrorist attacks to mark the Millennium.

There has been an upsurge in interest in millennial death pact bids in this country and the USA, and Monte Kim Miller, the dangerous American Millennium cult leader, is in hiding in Britain. Police on both sides of the Atlantic fear extreme religious groups will use the festival for their own ends. Key target for any cult suicide bid or terrorist attack is believed to be the Millennium Dome in Greenwich.
