Russia Today 16 Nov. 2015: President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.
TV2.dk 16 Nov. 2015: Back in August, the French authorities knew that the Islamic state was in the process of planning an attack on a casino in Paris.
So says former anti-terrorist judge Marc Trevidic, who has worked with the anti-terrorist unit since 2010.
In a TV interview given to the French TV channel France 2 yesterday he explained that young men he cross-examined in August told him, that the Islamic State had asked them to plan an attack on a French rock concert.
– The last one I had come for cross-examination acknowledged, and said he had been asked to ‘clear’ a rock concert – an attack at a rock concert.
Not Bataclan, but maybe Rock en Seine (one three-day rock festivals that will be held in Paris ed.). I do not know, for he did not yet know the place, he would be assigned, said Marc Trevidic.
