Sixth arrest in London Underground terror bombing

A 17-year old boy was arrested Thursday morning in the south London district of Thornton Heath, in connection with last Friday’s bombing attack on a London Tube train. Four other men were arrested on Tuesday and Wednesday. Police continue to question Yahyah Farroukh, a Syrian refugee of 21, who was arrested in west |London Saturday night, as well as the first suspect taken into custody, who is an 18-year old refugee from Iraq. He was caught trying to board a ferry to France at Dover. Farroukh is the only suspect to be named by the police.

    The fact that the terrorist was a refugee, not a migrant, calls into question the implied premise of the refugee programs. If they cannot be sufficiently vetted, or their assumed gratitude to those who have sheltered them does not exist, then the costs and risks of admitting them may be much higher than has been assumed.

    Heretofore the only basis for objecting to bonafide refugees has been bigotry. Now that may no longer be true.

    Yahyah Farroukh may be talking.
