French intelligence fears Islamist ‘missile strike on airliner’ or 9/11-style attack
“French security forces are bracing for the eventuality of civil unrest and fear there could be a missile strike on a passenger airliner or a September 11-style attack, according to sources close to French intelligence.
‘Airlines have been warned of a possible attack on a plane with an anti-tank missile,’ a source told The Telegraph. ‘But pilots are unsure how to take evasive action.’
After Friday’s thwarted attempt to massacre passengers on an Amsterdam-Paris train and a series of terrorist attacks and attempted killings in France this year, President François Hollande warned the nation to prepare for more violence, considered inevitable as the Islamist threat grows.”
