The hardline Islamist group that has seized parts of Syria and Iraq is probably training and directing foreign fighters to carry out attacks in Europe and elsewhere, the European Union's counter-terrorism coordinator said on Thursday.Gilles de Kerchove also said it was likely that there would be more attacks in Europe like the shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last month that killed four people.Asked if he expected more attacks in Europe similar to the attack at the Jewish Museum, de Kerchove, a Belgian, said: "I am worried and I think it is likely".He said he was more afraid of a repeat of an attack similar to the Brussels shooting in Europe than he was about the possibility of a large-scale attack like the 2001 plane attacks on U.S. cities. The Brussels attack has raised alarm about the risk of Europeans going to fight in Syria and staging attacks in Europe when they return.
