Dozens of Europeans Training for Terror in Pakistan’s Tribal Areas

ISI Warns of Well-Educated Pakistanis with European Citizenship

In a rare announcemcent of a foreign plot, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency is reporting that it has evidence that dozens of people with European citizenship, including a large number of highly educated Pakistanis are flocking to the tribal areas looking for terrorist training.

Officials say that there are as many as 20 British citizens in North Waziristan and “several dozen” people with citizenship elsewhere in Europe. Militant groups have been keen to recruit people with such citizenship because they could travel freely within the European Union.

The report may well be linked to last week’s claims of a “credible but non-specific” plot to carry out a Mumbai-style attack against some site in Europe or North America. The US has insisted that the massive escalation of drone strikes into the tribal areas is because of the plot.
