British police operation to stop refugee boat jihadis is scuppered by Libya after militia storm base

A top-secret operation by British agents in Libya to stop terrorists being smuggled into Europe by people-traffickers has been shut down after an assault by government militia.

The notorious Nawasi Brigade stormed the operations base in Tripoli of the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) – dealing a devastating blow to efforts to prevent terror attacks in Europe, highly placed sources in Libya have told The Mail on Sunday.

Hard-line jihadis and gangsters who make up the militia are now the nominal coastguard security – but, in fact, are working with people-smugglers for a cut of their vast income.
