The Greek government has announced one of the terrorist gunmen who had a part in killing over 120 in Paris on Friday evening entered Europe while masquerading as a refugee just six weeks ago.
Reports early on Saturday that one of the gunmen was found to have been carrying a Syrian passport have been followed by an announcement by Greek minister for citizen protection Nikos Tosca that the individual was masquerading as a refugee, reports Greek Antenna news.
The unnamed killer was registered on the Greek island of Leros in the southern Aegean sea on the third of October. The Island is just ten miles from the Turkish coast and has been a major point of ingress for so-called ‘refugees’ into Europe, alongside neighbour island Kos.
It is possible the man had travelled from Syria with his fellow killers with the express intention of attacking Paris, and taking advantage of the migrant flow to pass into the continent unnoticed. Britain’s BBC reports this afternoon the group may have been a self contained terror ‘cell’ from Syria.
The news will come as a major shock to the European establishment who have mocked and derided those who have warned that the migrant route into Europe would be exploited by those wishing to do harm to Europe.
Having come ashore in Europe in October, the killer spent just six weeks as a refugee before killing in Paris.
