Zarqawi’s European Network

Email Email Print

From the London Telegraph’s Anton La Guardia:

A wave of arrests across Europe has thrown new light on a European terrorist network being developed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most prominent insurgent in Iraq….

“Zarqawi thinks he is bigger than Iraq,” a British source said. “He is spreading his tentacles in Europe. There is a sense that attacks are inevitable.

“Even before the invasion of Iraq, Zarqawi had a network in Europe that provided funds and recruits. The same pipeline will sooner or later pump the other way, from Iraq to Europe.”

In France last week Nicolas Sarkozy, the interior minister, said that a sweep of 25 alleged Islamic militants and common criminals had broken up a terrorist network with links to Algerian and Chechen organisations and “indirect relations with al-Zarqawi”….

This week Spanish police arrested 15 people in raids across the country. Those detained are suspected of recruiting fighters for Iraq.
