One of the Paris suicide bombers was helped on to a Greek island and clothed by French volunteers before making his way through Europe to his target, it emerged yesterday.
The Islamic State fanatic, known as Ahmad Almohammad from a fake Syrian passport found at Stade De France, had sailed to Leros with a group of English-speaking pals, reports theSun.
Officials said they were helped ashore with nearly 200 refugees after deliberately driving a knife through their boat as they neared land on October 3. Two were then discovered with fake Syrian passports and arrested.
But Almohammad, 25, was ushered through and moved to a camp staffed by French charity Médecins Sans Frontières.
Less than 24 hours later, in a black tracksuit given to him by the volunteers, he was in a group of six buying tickets to Athens.
Travel agent Dimitris Kastis, 42, recalled: “One of his pals who spoke English ordered the tickets. When I heard about him I was very surprised. He didn’t look suspicious.”
Almohammad took the ten-hour boat trip to Athens on October 5.
Police say he spent two days there before heading through Macedonia to request asylum in Serbia.
He entered Croatia on October 8 and made his way to France where he is thought to have blown himself up outside the France-Germany match.
Leros harbourmaster Sakellarios Biliris remembered his group sabotaging their boat.
He said: “No one saw anything wrong with his passport. The situation was chaotic. One week 3,500 refugees came here.”
As stated before by several European politicians, Middle-East sources and ISIS themselves, ISIS is in fact sending terrorists with the flow of migrants and refugees. The question is how many?
