Terrorists try to exploit the ongoing Migration Crisis

“Terrorism is a threat that affects us all equally today – not just in Europe, but globally. Terrorism is not just a threat to our security; it is also a threat to our cohesion and to our democracies. We have also seen a few cases where terrorists try to abuse and exploit the current migration situation, by attempting to infiltrate the migration flows and spread fear. Every single person trying to cross our borders is systematically checked against all security databases. All migrants arriving at the hotspots are fingerprinted and screened for security risks,” said EU Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos remarks at the launch of the 2017 EU Terrorism Report.
