ISIS upping efforts to smuggle terrorists into Britain
Islamic State is increasing its efforts to smuggle terrorists into Britain to launch attacks on civilians, according to new intelligence gathered following last year’s Paris massacre.
The 900,000 pages of intelligence from European investigations into the November attacks, in which 130 people were killed, has reportedly revealed the scale of the slaughter could have been much worse.
The new documents leaked to the media say two other would-be attackers – Algerian Adel Haddadi and Pakistani Muhammad Usman – also intended to strike France. The pair were given fake Syrian passports and smuggled into Europe using the same route refugees have been taking, according to the documents.
They were only stopped when Greek authorities found they were using fake passports. The Mirror reports the delay meant they could not take part in the Paris attacks. – READ MORE
