Europe faces a ‘huge risk of terrorist attacks’ over Christmas, an EU official has warned.

European Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson said anger caused by the Israel-Hamas war made violence more likely.

‘We saw (it happening) recently in Paris, unfortunately we have seen it earlier as well,’ she said, referring to the stabbing near the Eiffel Tower on Saturday that left one dead and two injured.

Johansson said the EU was making £26million available for additional security in vulnerable areas, notably places of worship.
