I bet there were concerns raised

The BBC reports that several weeks ago two local employees of the UK Consulate in East Jerusalem have been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to fire rockets into a football stadium.

Fine, one has to accept that the offence is still an alleged one and, furthermore, the men in question did maintenance work in the Consulate and did not have any sort of a security clearance. Or so the Foreign Office tells us. But the case does raise the odd question about basic vetting procedures in a politically sensitive part of the world.
