A new report says around a third of foreign terrorists who went to Syria and Iraq have returned to Europe and some of them may have orders to conduct attacks. A report seen by France-Presse news agency, warns about those who return home on specific missions, adding that some European women and children could also pose a security threat as they may have been radicalized during their time with Daesh. It also noted that the returnees were keeping in touch with Daesh in the Middle East via social media. EU counter-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove is set to present the report to the bloc’s interior ministers on Friday.
