82 security workers hired for Euro 2016 are on terror watch list

Up to 82 workers hired to bolster security at Euro 2016 are on French terror watch lists, it has been claimed, as fears grow of an ISIS attack during the event.

French intelligence chiefs have screened 3,500 staff brought in to ensure the safety of fans at the tournament, which begins on Friday when host nation France takes on Romania.

The 82 people highlighted on watch lists could ‘by definition’ either belong to a terror group or have a background of ‘questionable behaviour or extreme beliefs on either the left or right’, it has been reported.

    Hmmm. Something tells me that those 82 are more likely to belong to the religion of explosions than be right leaning.

    French are so clever.
    The day that all their “special people” show up for work or they all don’t show up for work should forewarn something unusual is afoot.

    One more major terrorist attack on the European continent may be enough to set off the population to take revenge.
