‘Hundreds’ of Pictures of ISIS Flags, Executions Found on Refugees' Phones

Hundreds of refugees entering Norway were found to have pictures of ISIS flags and executions on their phones.


The reports that the newly-discovered pictures foster fears that the refugee crisis is part of ISIS’ scheme to infiltrate the West.


The Police Immigration Service (PU) in Norway has been working overtime in an effort to screen all the refugees attempting to enter Norway. During the screening process, the PU found the disturbing pictures on many of the refugees’ phones.


The photos included gruesome beheadings, victims of war, and symbols of ISIS and other terrorist organizations.


Although many view this as incriminating evidence, Erik Haugland, head of Norway’s asylum programme, suggested that there may be an innocent explanation. Haugland suggested that the refugees may have taken pictures of the violence that they witnessed in their home countries in order to bear witness to the horrors of war they were fleeing.


The debate of what to do with the incoming refugees continues in the West, heightened by the revelation that at least three of the Paris terrorists had obtained fake Syrian passports which they used to get into Europe, disguised as refugees.


MailOnline reporter Nick Fagge revealed how easy it is for someone to obtain a false Syrian passport by burying one himself as part of a report on the illegal printing of identity documents.
