With the on going migration of millions of people out of Syria, Libya, Iran and Iraq, the possibility of ISIS militants hiding amongst them is very likely. Do you think this ISIS militant was posing as a refugee? Check out the details below.
The individual who authorities suspect could be the infamous “man in the hat” seen walking alongside the Brussels Airport suicide bombers is a Syrian “refugee” who arrived in Greece last September.
According to a report in France’s Le Monde newspaper, the “man in the hat” could be Naim al-Hamed, who was born in Syria in 1988 and arrived in Europe amongst the wave of refugees who entered via Greece last year.
Al-Hamed arrived with Sofiane Ayari, another suspected Brussels terror plotter, who was captured in a police raid along with Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam.
Both Ayari and al-Hamed are thought to have been visited by Abdeslam in Germany just one month before the Paris attacks.
Hamed’s DNA was also found at the Rue Max Roos apartment from where the Brussels attackers left at dawn to carry out the airport attack.
If al-Hamed is not the “man in the hat,” he is still suspected to be an accomplice of Khalid El-Bakraoui, the suicide bomber who blew himself up on the train at Maelbeek metro station.
