The City's position as the United Kingdom's financial centre and a critical part of the country's economy, contributing about 2.,5% of the UK's [[gross national product]],<ref>[http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/Corporation/media_centre/keyfacts.htm Key facts<!-- Bot generated title -->]</ref> has resulted in it becoming a target for political violence. The [[Provisional IRA]] exploded several [[bomb]]s in the City in the early 1990s, including the [[1993 Bishopsgate bombing]].
The area is also spoken of as a possible target for [[al-Qaeda]]. For instance, when in May 2004 the BBC's ''[[Panorama (TV series)|Panorama]]'' programme examined the preparedness of Britain's emergency services for a terrorist attack on the scale of [[September 11, 2001 attacks]], they simulated a chemical explosion on [[Bishopsgate]] in the east of the City.
