Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A ring of alleged Al-Qaeda organizers was busted near here yesterday (local news report). It's very worrying, very.

Does it seem more of a genuine thing or more of a theatrical Sarkozy performance to you?

Syria sent back to France two people from Paris who were trying to get into Iraq. The arrests seem to be among their contacts. The allegation is they're a recruiting ring sending youngsters to fight in Iraq. To me it sounds more genuine than fake, but of limited importance.

I understood that much, what I understood less is how al Qaida came into the picture. If I got it right, some 'documents' found with the two caught in Syria are the proof.

Al-Qaeda gets into every picture... Sarkozy's people did frame the communication on the issue, though, by making sure it was said that Sarko was right on top of the file (even though he was leaving for two days on Réunion).
