A new, shocking EU report warns: "The European Union and its Member States must prepare for the possibility of a chemical or biological attack on their territory by the self-styled Islamic State. CBRN materials are already smuggled into the EU."
CBRN stands for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear materials.
The 10 page report also says that the Islamic State "already has the necessary knowledge, and in several cases also human expertise to use CBRN weapons for terror."
In November, French President Francois Hollande, warned of the risk of attacks with nerve gas. The country has just purchased large amount of antidote to sarin.
Sarin is considered "one of the world's deadliest nerve agents." A sarin attack in Syria in 2013 killed up to 1,400 people.
"At present, European citizens are not seriously contemplating the possibility that extremist groups might use chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) materials during attacks in Europe. Under these circumstances, the impact of such an attack, should it occur, would be even more destabilising", the report says, and further states that we should be warned:
"European governments and EU institutions need to be on alert, and should consider publicly addressing the possibility of a terrorist attack using chemical, biological, radiological or even nuclear materials."
