On March 22, the Belgian capital Brussels was shaken by suicide bombings at an international airport and a metro station, leaving at least 23 people dead and dozens injured.

A series of bloody attacks on the French capital Paris in November 2015, leaving 130 dead, showed that just a few suicide terrorist groups armed with AK-47 guns and explosive belts could cause massacres that caused death.

This expert added that Europe is currently in the `reach of terrorism`.

Didier Le Bret, chairman of the French National Intelligence Council, said the European intelligence community has discovered a growing network of attack plots in Europe.
