个人理解

Defense Secretary John Reid said that even though the four named suspects were British, the acts they were accused of committing were part of "an international battle of enormous proportions."

——
这里难以理解的应该只是 "an international battle of enormous proportions."

of enormous proportions很大程度上算是

如果非要安个数字,那就可能是八九分都是境外的,只有一两分是境内的。说明这是一场国际较量,英国只是其中一小部分。

尽管这几个嫌疑犯是英国人,但是他们的罪行基本上可以说是国际恐怖活动中的一部分。(意思是英国恐怖活动不是孤立的,而是有重大国际背景的)
