British Home Secretary Theresa May said Friday the country's terror threat risk level was being raised to "severe" due to fears over the situation in Iraq and Syria.

The "severe" threat level means an attack is "highly likely", although May added there was no intelligence to suggest that an attack was imminent. The threat level is now at the second highest level out of five possible categories and is at its highest since July 2011.

By Stephen Jewkes and Valentina Za MILAN (Reuters) - Fiat signaled its merger with U.S. Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne wants to incorporate the two carmakers into a Dutch-registered company called Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), paving the way for a U.S. Fiat said it was finishing a count of shares for which cash exit rights had been validly exercised, but it could already say that the 500 million euro limit would not be exceeded, based on data calculated so far. "Fiat has determined that even if all remaining unmatched notices and unmatched confirmations were to be matched, the maximum number of shares for which cash exit rights have been validly exercised will yield an aggregate exposure that is below the cap," it said in a statement.
