They had planned to pretend to be refugees. Turkish police on Tuesday arrested at the airport in Istanbul eight Moroccans presented as militant Islamic State Group (EI), which, according to the authorities wanted to go illegally in Germany, reported the pro-government news agency Anatolia.
Sources close to the security services say, the eight suspects arrived on a flight from Casablanca (Morocco), and told police to be tourists, asssuring they had booked rooms in a hotel. After Verifications were made, the police found that this was not the case. They took the eight suspects to a special anti-terrorist unit who discovered on one of them a handwritten document detailing a route before driving by train, bus or train to Germany via Greece, Serbia and Hungary . The eight suspects were to go to Germany illegally posing Syrian refugees.Hmmmm......How many have already slipped through the net? Read the full story here. More on this story here.
