On November 13th, 2015, a coordinated terrorist attack in Paris killed 130 people and injured 352 others. The attack was carried out by a commando of at least 8 Islamic State terrorists divided in 3 groups, and masterminded by Belgian national Abdelhamid Abaaoud, killed in a raid in Saint-Denis on November 18th. Some of the perpetrators were already known to the authorities as dangerous radicalized individuals, while others were identified foreign fighters with battlefield experience in Syria.
While fear of further attacks remains high, should questions about the skills, resources and coordination of European intelligence agencies be raised?
