Europe - Terror Network

The Sunday Times reports on europe's terror network.

A SERIES of arrests in Spain, Germany, France and Holland has revealed a European terror network that recruits fighters and suicide bombers and sends them into Iraq.

For two years recruiters have been providing fake documents, training and finance for the fighters, communicating secretly over the internet and liaising with cells based in Syria.

Not to worry, according to the BBC's "The Power of Nightmares", this is all just a myth.

And Spain's appeasement move seems to have failed.

These five, in turn, are closely linked to Mohamed Achraf, an Algerian awaiting extradition from Switzerland. Achraf is known to have been planning a lorry bomb attack on the National Court in Madrid. The aim was to punish Spain, kill the investigating judges and destroy terrorism records in a single action.

There's also bad news for those that tried to claim the Van Gogh murder wasn't linked to terrorism.

Telephone records prove a link between Achraf and Mohammed Bouyeri, the alleged killer of Theo van Gogh, the Dutch film maker.
