Al Qaeda boss who served seven years for terror offences ‘smuggled himself into Europe by posing as a refugee’

The leader of an al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group was smuggled into Europe posing as a refugee trying to cross the Mediterranean, it has been claimed.

Mehdi Ben Nasr Muslim TerroristMehdi Ben Nasr, 38, served seven years in jail for being the leader of a jihadi cell which recruited would-be suicide bombers in Europe and directed them to Iraq and Afghanistan.

European leaders have denied that there is evidence of jihadis exploiting the refugee crisis by disguising themselves as migrants and joining them on crossings.

But intelligence analysts have warned that would-be militants could be using the migrant routes to reach Europe undetected.

    Of course officials deny there is evidence of jihadists exploiting the refugee crisis. To do otherwise would require them to admit that all muslims are jihadists in waiting, and that there are no muslim refugees.
