ISLAMIC State (ISIS) extremists have recruited an army of scientists and already smuggled chemical and biological weapons into Europe, a shocking parliamentary report has revealed.
The terror organisation, also known as Daesh, “may be planning to try to use internationally banned weapons of mass destruction in future attacks” according to the European Parliament document compiled by its political analyst Beatrix Immenkamp in the wake of last month’s Paris attacks.
The worrying report reveals: “Chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN)substances have been carried undetected into the European Union. Interpol’s monthly CBRN intelligence reports show numerous examples of attempts to acquire, smuggle or use CBRN materials.”
Rob Wainwright, head of Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency, said after the Paris attacks: ‘We are dealing with a very serious, well-resourced, determined international terrorist organisation that is now active on the streets of Europe.
“This represents the most serious terrorist threat faced in Europe for 10 years.”
