Many now pose a "serious threat," according to the police agency Europol.Turkey has deported around 3,250 suspected "foreign terrorist fighters" since 2011 – a number that does not include those turned back before making it to Syria, according to its Foreign Ministry.As for Bakraoui, what he did while in Turkey and what he would go on to do in Brussels would remain a mystery to Belgian authorities for quite some time.In five other cases with Dutch nationals – all but one involving suspected travel to Syria – Turkish authorities followed up the electronic notification by contacting Dutch police.More than 82,000 people were expelled from EU countries in 2012, mostly migrants, and the procedures involved were similar to those followed in Turkey, according to aviation officials.European Union agencies are reluctant to share information among themselves, let alone with an outsider like Turkey, even if it is a candidate to join the 28-nation bloc.
