The grave danger to Europe was created by elected politicians who have deserted protecting their own country and citizens. Do they have a picture of the person that could be published?
Security minister Ben Wallace said there were reports of IS using chemical weapons in Syria and Iraq, where it controls large areas, and that the Moroccan authorities apprehended a cell in February which was harbouring substances that could be used to either make a bomb or a “deadly toxin”.
He also pointed to a recent Europol report which warned of the chemical threat and the potential realisation of “everybody’s worst fear”.
Mr Wallace said: “Experts have warned that their ambition is a mass casualty attack and they have no moral barrier to using whatever means possible. Telegraph
MI5 are understood to be hunting for a Syrian scientist posing as a refugee plotting a chemical attack on a British seaside town.
Counter-terrorism police raided a migrant centre in Berlin the day after the Christmas market truck massacre and are said to have recovered documents detailing the planned attack.
They allegedly contained detailed of various chemical agents and included the name of two English towns.
The suspect, said to be in his early 30s, has gone off the radar and it is feared he could be in the UK, according to the Sunday Express.
It came after a raid of Tempelhof airport, which has now been closed down to house the country’s largest refugee camp.
Officers visited the site on December 20, and a source told the Express the documents recovered were so serious that MI5 were immediately called in.
It is thought officers are searching both named targets, and one of them is described as a ‘seaside town on the south coast’.
Potential targets could include Brighton and Hove, Dover, Bournemouth or Torquay.
US authorities have been following the man since he left Damascus, according to the Sunday Express, and it has been claimed British officials were told previously about a Syrian scientist posing as a migrant.
The paper claims the scientist went rogue having been a a vital cog in President Assad’s chemical attacks. DailyMail
