EU's Police Chief: Up To 5K Terrorists in Europe; "We Can Expect Rel.Terror Group to Stage Attack"

The European Union's police chief has warned that up to 5,000 jihadists could be at large in Europe after training with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Telegraph (British) website reports today (February 20, 2016).

Europol -- the EU's police agency -- estimates the number of EU citizens who have slipped back after training in the Middle East as between 3,000 and 5,000, Rob Wainwright, the British head of Europol said.

"Europe is currently facing the highest terror threat in more than ten years," Wainwright added.

He told a German newspaper, "We can expect ISIS or other religious terror groups to stage an attack somewhere in Europe with the aim of achieving mass casualties among the civilian population."
