EU anti-terror police to track extremists at Greece camps

ATHENS, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th August, 2016) - Anti-terror experts from European police agency Europol will travel to Greece in an effort to track would-be militants amongst the migrants stuck in the country's camps, a Greek police source said Saturday.

The team is expected to arrive in mainland Greece by the end of the month, the source said. Its deployment is part of the "permanent cooperation between Greek authorities, their European counterparts and Europol" since Greece was hit by a massive influx of refugees and migrants in 2015 hoping to head to northern Europe, the source added.
