Islamic State has a burgeoning passport manufacturing industry, which originally got its start after militants seized a trove of documents from Iraq, Syria and Libya.
French Minister of the Interior Bernard Cazeneuve delivered news of the thriving passport operation Monday at a press conference, at which point he also advocated for a special task force to be sent to Greece in order to screen out fake documents held by migrants, The Wall Street Journal reports.
“Daesh has managed to seize passports in Iraq, Syria and Libya and to set up a true industry of fake passports,” Cazeneuve said.
No decision has been reached on the task force.
