Two men posing as Syrian refugees arrested; suspected ties to Paris attacks

If ever there was a case to caution against accepting Syrian refugees, this is it.

Two men posing as Syrian refugees have been arrested in Austria for having suspected ties with ISIS and are thought to have been part of November’s terrorist attack in Paris.

Benjamin Hall reported on Fox News’ “Your World” that the suspects are French citizens with Algerian and Pakistani roots, but possibly travelled to Greece in October among Syrian refugees for reasons not yet known.

Austrian authorities believe the men were waiting on orders to wage another jihad and the arrests may have thwarted a future attack. European media indicated the men may have been part of a larger underground ISIS cell, according to Hall.

The suspects were apprehended in a migrant camp near the city of Salzburg having fake Syrian passports, which ISIS is suspected of mass producing.
