  • Migrants Pose as Syrians to Open Door to Asylum in Europe – Manuela Mesco, Matt Bradley and Giovanni Legorano
    As Europe moves to take in large numbers of refugees, particularly from Syria, some other migrants – often Iraqis, Libyans, Palestinians and Egyptians – are passing themselves off as Syrian, said aid workers, government officials and fellow migrants. At Budapest’s Keleti Train Station last week, Mahmoud, a Syrian from Aleppo, looked around at the new arrivals. Judging from their accents and dialects, he reckoned that little more than 10% were Syrian. But he saw many more passing themselves off as Syrians. The masquerade risks undermining political support for the EU’s open-door policy. (Wall Street Journal)
