Two Syrian refugees who were located in Kos on Tuesday are being investigated by Greek authorities in Piraeus over possible ties with the so-called “Islamic State” terrorist group. According to reports the two refugees were located at the port on Kos while waiting to be registered. The Coast Guard officers decided to transfer them to Piraeus.
An article in the Eleftheros Typos newspaper claims that the two Syrians were under surveillance by the National Intelligence Agency (EYP) over possible ties with ISIS. Photographs of guns, knives, ISIS flags and hooded men were found on their mobile phones. One of the two suspects was pictured posing in front of an ISIS flag.
