Concerns are growing that Islamist terrorists are infiltrating refugee groups in Europe and “stockpiling explosives” in the Western Balkans and in some EU member states, according to Europol.

Manuel Navarrete Paniagua, counterterrorism chief for Europol, the EU’s law enforcement agency, told members the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties that “secondary checks at the member state level, especially in Greece and Italy,” are essential.

“We have some information reported by the member states that terrorist groups are trying to establish large clandestine stockpiles of explosives in the European Union to be used eventually in large scale home attacks,” Paniagua said during a recent debate.
