Reuters reports that police in Bari, Italy, arrested an Iraqi man on suspicions of helping 11 foreign Daesh member enter Italy.
The suspect, Majid Muhamed, served ten years in jail for international terrorism and was released last year, according to Reuters. He is suspected of obtaining false passports for miltants coming from Pakistan, Egypt, Iran, Morocco, and Turkey.
Italian police state that Muhamed had connections to an imam in the Molenbeek neighborhood of Brussles, known for extremist preaching. There are no direct ties between Muhamed and the Paris attacks at this time.
The 11 foreign fighters are thought to have moved out of Italy and further into Europe.
