SENTILJ, Slovenia – The latest news as hundreds of thousands make their way across Europe in search of safety and a better life. All times local.
Asylum seekers fleeing war and poverty in Syria and other war-ravaged countries are condemning the Paris attacks fearing it may become more difficult for the refugees to start new lives in Western Europe.
The migrants streaming through Slovenia toward Austria, Germany and other wealthy EU nations said Saturday the terror attacks resemble the wars that they are fleeing.
Zebar Akram, 29, from Iraq, said the terrorists actions in Paris were "like they act in Syria or Iraq." Abdul Selam, 31, who is fleeing Syria, said he fears refugees now "will be considered as probable attackers."
"In Syria there is war, here is war," said Ferhad Nezdevan, 29, from Syria. "It's a problem."
