EUROPE ON TERROR ALERT: Police seize jihadi weapons ‘capable of downing AIRCRAFT’

Express

TERRORISTS in Europe are now capable of “bringing down aircraft”, Spanish police warned as they revealed the details of a huge weapons seizure this week.

Anti-terror investigators confiscated 12,000 weapons this week – just before they were sold to terrorists by a Spanish gang, who have now been arrested.

Police said the weapon trafficking network was terrifying in its size and capability – which now includes anti-aircraft weaponry.

The country’s Interior Minister said “several anti-aircraft guns capable of bringing down aircraft” were seized on Thursday, along with thousands of rifles.

The entire arsenal was worth nearly £9 million. Police also seized more than £70,000 in cash.
