Spain's interior minister on the 7 Sep 15 called for tighter controls to prevent members of the armed jihadist group Isis from infiltrating the "avalanche" of refugees arriving in Europe from Syria. "The vast majority are refugees fleeing war, terror, but we can't forget the Da’esh is over there and these barbarians have shown that they are capable of carrying out their threats," Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said. "How can we doubt that, among this avalanche people who are not refugees could infiltrate themselves." "Besides it is obvious that these people are fleeing above all Syria and Da’esh is established there," he added. "Spain will not refuse the right of asylum to anyone, controls must be strengthened to welcome these people".
