Interpol urges 'extra vigilance' at borders after Abdeslam arrest

Interpol on Saturday urged “extra vigilance at border controls” the day after the arrest of top Paris attacks fugitive Salah Abdeslam in Belgium. In a statement, Interpol drew particular attention to a blank Syrian passport that was found outside the Stade de France stadium, one of the targets of the November 13 attacks that claimed 130 lives. The body based in Lyon, France, said the passport had been recorded in Interpol’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database in April 2014, adding that it was part of a batch of 1,452 stolen blank passports.
