Submission + - UK In Danger From Electromagnetic Bomb, Says Defence Secretary->

judgecorp writes: "Britain must build defences against an EMP bomb, the UK Secretary of Defence Phillip Hammond told a conference today.

Any preparation for olar storms must also consider the possibility of deliberate electromagnetic events, warns Hammond."
