THE European Union is not fighting hard enough against the rising tide of extremism, a lawyer has warned as she claimed Europeans have been abandoned.

The Turkish-born German lawyer called for the closure of radical mosques and for European governments to address the thorny issue of foreign funding of Islamist extremism.

Seyran Ates, a Muslim feminist and human rights campaigner, said: “The European Union is not putting enough effort into combating rising far-left, far-right and religious extremism.

There needs to be more cooperation and information sharing between member states.
