IS poses 'immediate' threat to Europe: US

Director of the National Counterterrorism Center Matthew Olsen testifies to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, March 6, 2014Islamic State extremists fighting in Iraq and Syria pose an “immediate” threat to Europe as a significant number carried European passports, top US intelligence officials said Friday. The danger presented by jihadists potentially returning to the West to carry out attacks has prompted more cooperation between US and European intelligence agencies in a bid to track terror suspects, the officials said. Matthew Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, suggested IS militants presented a more serious danger for European states than for America, given the number of recruits from EU countries. “The threat is quite immediate for Europe,” Olsen told reporters.
