A report in French newspaper Le Monde alleges the "man in the hat," a suspected terrorist seen on tape during the Brussels attacks, is a Syrian refugee. Does the prove the "open arms" policy is a failure?
The individual who authorities suspect could be the infamous “man in the hat” seen walking alongside the Brussels Airport suicide bombers is a Syrian “refugee” who arrived in Greece last September.According to a report in France’s Le Monde newspaper, the “man in the hat” could be Naim al-Hamed, who was born in Syria in 1988 and arrived in Europe amongst the wave of refugees who entered via Greece last year.
Al-Hamed arrived with Sofiane Ayari, another suspected Brussels terror plotter, who was captured in a police raid along with Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam.
Both Ayari and al-Hamed are thought to have been visited by Abdeslam in Germany just one month before the Paris attacks.
