MI5 head warns Europe against underestimating the Islamic State

London, May 14 (IBNS): Andrew Parker, the head of British intelligence agency MI5, has warned Europe against taking the Islamic State lightly.

In a strong worded statement, the director general of MI5 has said that IS still aspires to carry out devastating and complex attacks in Europe, given it has lost some grounds in the Middle East.

He will also reiterate his stance during the meeting of European security chiefs in Berlin.

Parker is also expected to raise Salisbury spy poisoning saga there, where the UK has accused Russia of carrying out the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

A Novichok nerve agent was reportedly used in the attempted murder of the father-daughter duo, however, both have survived.

Parker made his statement after at least one person was killed by an attacker wielding a knife in Paris, France, on Saturday.

The attacker was shot dead by police, but not before he managed to injure four others.

US President Donald Trump too has urged other countries to change their thought process on terrorism.
