Italians Thwart Terror Attack

Hat tip The Rebel, Vlad Tepes and Gates of Vienna

Last month, Italian police in the Naples area arrested a Gambian man who was planning to carry out a terrorist attack using a van to plow into pedestrians. Alagei Touray, 22, an asylum-seeker who arrived in Italy over the Mediterranean, was arrested April 20 outside the mosque he was frequenting in the town of Licola.

In the  below link (Disregard the reference to Montreal.) there is a video which I sub-titled. You may not be able to get it to play, however.

 "ITALY: Detained Gambian Wanted To Carry Out Terror Attack In Exchange For €1,500
A Gambian man detained by anti-terror police in Italy had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) and was planning to use a vehicle and run over a crowd of people in exchange for €1,500, Italian newspaper, Corriere Della Serra is reporting.
According to intelligence and counter-terrorism sources, Alagi Touray, 22, who arrived in Italy last year after being rescued from a dingy in the Mediterranean, was a pawn in an international network reaching from Libya to Italy and with branches in France and Spain.
