Airport security and border controls are expected to be tightened further following the Paris attacks.
That’s according to a report by the Reuters news agency on a leaked draft G20 statement, which says a finalised document will be released later today (Sunday).
The group of twenty world leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, are attending the annual talk fest in the Turkish city of Antalya whose agenda has been dominated by the terrorist attacks in Paris and other related issues, including the growing refugee crisis.
Trudeau has reportedly asked other countries to follow Canada’s promise to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees.
Meanwhile, the passport of a Syrian refugee has been found near the remains of one of the dead suicide bombers, however authorities are exercising caution linking the two amid reports of another passport which was found and originally thought to belong to a terror suspect.
Egyptian authorities say that passport belongs to Egyptian national Waleed Abdel-Razzak, who they describe as a victim of the attacks with no known links to Islamist radical groups.
Some observers say it’s unlikely terrorists would carry their own identity documents to attacks, and the Islamic State group — which has claimed responsibility for the attacks — has in the past criticised refugees fleeing the Syrian conflict as it undermines its message of providing a “caliphate refuge” from the west.
At least 129 people were killed and 350 injured in Friday night’s terror attacks the French government is blaming on the Islamic State group.
