Serious concerns ISIS jihadists have entered Cyprus among Syrian refugees

Many had photos posing in ISIS uniforms

Cypriot authorities fear a number of Islamic State fighters might have entered the island with Syrian refugees. According to a report by Cypriot newspaper “Politis”, photographs depicting Syrians who arrived as refugees in Cyprus show that some of them took part in the civil war in Syria as fighters of the Islamic State.

As the report says, during a random check on asylum seekers’ mobile phones at the refugee accommodation centre, Cypriot authorities found saved photos of Syrians applying for asylum posing with arms dressed in Islamic State “uniforms”.
