Terror cell 'smuggled missiles into Europe'

"An Islamic terror cell has smuggled two surface-to-air missiles into Europe in a plot to shoot down planes at one of France's main airports, it was claimed yesterday."

I'm a bit late with this post but in case you missed it, story is here.

"Both missiles and several of the extremists are reportedly still at large"

The cell is linked to Zarqawi as well as to Adnan Muhammad Sadik, alias Abu Atiya, who was an al Qaeda rep in the Caucasus, and also allegedly set up sleeper cells including the "Chechen network" which "returned to France with the missiles and chemical and biological agents such as botulin, ricin and cyanide."

This story adds some more pieces to the puzzle of the narrative arising from the flurry of recent stories about French anti-terrorism officials expressing concern about Iraq being used as a base for training terrorists to carry out attacks in France. Posted by Picasa
