Alert as blueprint for bloodshed exposed
Isil militants are planning a takeover of Libya as a "gateway" to Europe, letters have revealed.
The jihadis hope to flood the north African state with militiamen from Syria and Iraq, who will then sail across the Mediterranean posing as migrants on people- trafficking vessels, according to plans seen by Quilliam, the British anti-extremist group.
The fighters would then run amok in southern European cities and also try to attack maritime shipping. The document is written by an Isil propagandist who is believed to be an important online recruiter for the terror group in Libya, where security has collapsed in the wake of the revolution that unseated Colonel Gaddafi in 2011.
