Following raids in four Italian cities, four people who police officers described as “a highly dangerous group” were arrested in Brescia, Italy and in Kosovo. All were Kosovan citizens with suspected links to Syrian jihadists.
According to the police, the group had “threatened Pope Francis, celebrated the recent attacks in Paris and threatened the ex-US ambassador in Kosovo.” They have been accused of “condoning terrorism” and “inciting racial hatred” and are all suspected of spreading jihadi propaganda online.
Investigators in the case said they found threats made online by the group, including one against the pope which read, “This will be the last Pope.”
