New EU anti-terror chief warns of ‘Islamic extremism’

The EU’s new anti-terror coordinator says ‘Islamic extremism’ poses the greatest security threat to Europe.

Speaking in parliament on Monday, Gilles de Kerchove, a former Belgian justice minister, also called for tougher border controls to combat terror.

The former law professor also reassured EU member states that his role was to support, not replace, their efforts in tackling terrorism.
