Leder for Interpol, britiske Rob Wainwright, sier Europa står overfor den største trusselen siden 9/11. EU må være forberedt på at 3.000-5.000 jihadister med erfaring fra Syria og Irak, vender tilbake.

Up to 5,000 Islamist fanatics are at large after returning to Europe from the front line in Syria, the Continent’s police chief has revealed.

Rob Wainwright, the British head of Europol, said the threat from home-grown terrorists was at its highest level since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

Mr Wainwright, appearing in front of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said Europe now faces it’s ‘most severe terrorist threat since 9/11’.

He added: ‘We are talking about 3,000 to 5,000 EU nationals who are potentially a threat.

‘Clearly, we’re dealing with a large body of mainly young men who have the potential to come back and have the potential or the intent and capability to carry out attacks we have seen in Paris in the last week.’ 

Nyttårsaften ble det slått alarm etter en tweet fra Syria ble fanget opp, hvor det het at IS hadde drept en britisk soldat hjemme i Storbritannia. Myndighetene frykter at IS vil forsøke å gjenta et Lee Rigby-lignende drap, filme det, og legge det ut.

IS kunne mandag triumfere med at de hadde hakket seg inn i kontoen til Centcom, den amerikanske overkommandoen for Midtøsten.
