France/Security: Intelligence officials warn over group of trained extremists heading to Europe

Following an U.S. tip-off, French Intelligence Officials warned that a group of 25 European nationals, who have undergone combat training in Pakistan, had planned to return to their home countries via Turkey.

Reportedly, authorities strongly fear that the extremists could also be able to recruit and radicalize new members in Europe, but also that might embark themselves on carrying out terror attacks.

As a reminder, recent intelligence reports have revealed the existence of an alleged terrorist plot preparing “Mumbai-style” attacks in major FrenchBritish and German cities and further investigation tracked the origins of the plot to groups of terrorists from the Pakistan’s North Waziristan.
