Flashback: 57 Paris airport workers on terror watch list (updated)


In light of missing EgyptAir Flight MS804, it was reported in November, 2015 that Dozens of Paris airport workers on terror watch list: report. One can only guess how many others are jihad sympathizers or how many still work there.

The security passes of 86,000 workers at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris will be reviewed after it was found that 57 employees with access to airliners were on a terror watch list, according to a report.

Security badges were taken away from dozens of workers at the airport after terror attacks in Paris in January — but others continued working, the Sunday Times of London reported.

Police official Philippe Riffault told the paper that the review of airport passes will begin with 5,000 security personnel.

“It’s a question of verifying what these people might have been doing since they obtained their authorization,” Riffault said.

Samy Amimour, who blew himself up in the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, managed to get a job as a bus driver while on a watch list.
In other developments:

  • It emerged that Arabic graffiti was spray-painted on four planes belonging to the British carrier EasyJet and a plane from the Spanish airline Vueling at two French airports. Three defaced planes were found in Lyon and two at Charles de Gaulle, AFP reported.
  • “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great,” was scrawled on a fuel-tank hatch of one EasyJet plane in Paris. EasyJet said there had been a “small number” of such cases since the Nov. 13 attacks.
  • The hunt continued for Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam, who was said to have enjoyed a coffee and a chat with a pal in a Brussels cafe the day after the attacks. It also emerged that he had bought 10 detonators from an explosives outfit in Saint-Ouen-l’Aumone near Paris.

CAIRO — In an eerie coincidence, the EgyptAir jetliner that plunged into the Mediterranean on Thursday was once the target of political vandals who wrote in Arabic on its underside, “We will bring this plane down.”

Three EgyptAir security officials said the threatening graffiti, which appeared about two years ago, had been the work of aviation workers at Cairo Airport.

  1. I’ve heard American citizens, especially during the Belgian airport bombing, remark how lackadaisical Europeans seem to be about security. If they con’t (won’t) help themselves why should we help? The Russian Bear is gearing up to “protect’ that part of Europe it lost when Communism collapsed.

  2. 666 ore reasons Muslims need to be constantly watched and NEVER trusted..the same situation already exists in USA- on boarding in NYC to Miami I was shocked to see that the GATE SECURITY were Muslims
