Europol chief warns of jihad threat
Berlin: European security officials are
warning of a new, decentralised jihadist threat that is hard
to track, a day after French police shot a homegrown extremist
who killed seven people on a hate-fueled rampage.
Europol chief Rob Wainwright says intelligence officials
believe "we have a different kind of jihadist threat emerging
and it`s getting stronger. It is much more decentralised and
harder to track."
Wainwright spoke to The Associated Press in an exclusive
telephone interview today from The Hague. He said combating
attacks from individuals working outside of networks will take
smarter measures in monitoring the Internet, better
intelligence and international cooperation.
Mohamed Merah, a 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian
descent, was killed yesterday in a shootout after police
raided the Toulouse apartment where he had been holed up for
32 hours in a standoff with authorities.
