This man was hunted for days. What he claims about EU borders will have every security official and agency doing some re-training.
Mohamed Abrini, who was identified as the “man in the hat,” one of the three terror suspects caught on camera in the Zaventem airport in Brussels, said Abdeslam took care of logistics, according to VTM Nieuws, which obtained details of Abrini’s interrogation.
“Abaaoud started as a normal warrior, but he had become an ’emir.’ He had 1,000 men under him, including many Belgians and French,” Abrini claimed.
Abrini said the terror cell moved freely through Europe. “You know, an international arrest warrant, to be sought [by the police], that doesn’t change anything,” he claimed. “I passed every day in front of soldiers, policemen. Not with a covered face, but with a cap.”
He added: “Security at the borders can never protect anyone. It’s just the politicians who want to delude people that they protect them, but there is usually no security. It has never been real.”
