"A new 'ghost train' system is to be set up in prisons in England and Wales to move the most troublesome Islamic extremist inmates between isolation units, the justice secretary has indicated. Liz Truss confirmed that specialist isolation units to hold the highest-risk prisoners would be created in high-security jails. ... A new Ministry of Justice directorate of security, order and counter-terrorism had been set up, she added. It would be responsible for ensuring that concentrating the most dangerous Islamist extremists into separate units would not simply allow them to create their own operational command structures, as happened in Northern Ireland."
