• Paris Terrorist Came to Europe as a Syrian Refugee

    At least one of the seven terrorists who carried out Friday night’s Paris massacre was a Syrian refugee who arrived in Greece last month, according to authorities.

    A Syrian passport has been found on the body of one of the suicide bombers at the Stade de France and presumably made his way to France via Greece as a refugee last month,French police have told Reuters.

    A second attacker also may have presented himself as a refugee on the Greek island of Leros two months earlier, officials said.

    Authorities haven’t ruled out the possibility that other extremists tied to the attack remain on the loose.

    The attack brought an immediate tightening of borders as President François Hollande, calling the attacks “an act of war,” declared a state of emergency and announced renewed border checks.

    The death toll in Paris currently stands at 129 people while another 415 people were admitted to hospital of which 42 are in a critical condition.
