Islamic State ‘planning to use Libya as gateway to Europe’

The jihadists hope to flood the north African state with militiamen from Syria and Iraq, who will then sail across the Mediterranean posing as migrants on people trafficking vessels, according to plans seen by Quilliam, the British anti-extremist group. (Daily Telegraph).

In the meantime in Rome, 30 Libyans are suspected to be close to terroristic organizations and ready to hit the Italian capital. As in many other previous cases, they are Italian citizens and with all documents in order. (Il Tempo)

Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni urged the international community to “quicken its pace before it is too late” to find a solution for security problems in Libya. (Deutsche Welle)
