Spooks: Hostage Takers (Part 2)

Ros is trapped inside the embassy during the siege of the Saudi Trade Centre. The terrorists demand the release of al-Qaida prisoners in Saudi Arabia and resort to killing the hostages when the government refuses to negotiate with them - but then suspicion arises as to the militants' real identities.
Rumors also arise which lead the MI5 team to suspect that they have a terrorist informant in their ranks.
