EU ministers to intensify counter-terrorism

SHAFAQNA – European Union interior ministers plan to put forward new solutions for countering terrorism following deadly terror attacks in the French capital city of Paris earlier this year. The ministers are expected to come together later on Thursday in the Belgian capital, Brussels, to explore avenues and make it harder for terrorism suspects to travel abroad or return home unhampered. The top officials would also highlight that the passports of everyone leaving or entering the 26-nation Schengen Area should be checked to ensure they are not stolen, forged or revoked. Furthermore, individual travelers should come under special scrutiny if they meet high-risk criteria, which are still to be devised.
