ISIS priest killer was awaiting trial on previous terror charges | Paul Thompson, Fidelma Cook, Peter Allen (Fr.) and Julian Robinson – Daily Mail Online

A ‘foreign service’ is said to have warned security services that another terror attack in France was imminent and sent out a photo of the second attacker.

The known ISIS terrorist who murdered a Catholic priest in northern France had told judges ‘I am not an extremist’ before being freed from prison to kill, it emerged today.

Shocking details about the lax manner with which 19-year-old Adel Kermiche was treated emerged following the slaughter of Father Jacques Hamel, 86, in Normandy.

Kermich was wearing an electronic tag, after serving part of his sentence for a range of terrorist offences including trying to join ISIS in Syria, and then being released in March. Authorities are trying to explain why it had been so easy for him and his accomplice to strike.

A psychological examination of Kermiche was carried out between October 2015 and February this year, during which he spoke freely about his motives and ambitions.
