Syrian Refugees Flight Lands In UK

The first plane load of Syrian refugees has arrived in the UK as the authorities say they have done their best to ensure they do not pose a terrorist threat.

The flight, believed to be carrying about 100 people from camps surrounding the war-torn Middle East state, landed at around 3.40pm yesterday.
Several more special flights will arrive at airports around Britain in the coming months as part of a programme to take 20,000 refugees over five years.

David Cameron established the plan following the outcry over the death of little Aylan Kurdi and his mother and brother, who was washed up on a Greek beach in September.

The arrivals come after it emerged that at least one of the attackers in the Paris atrocity is believed to have entered Europe through Greece posing as a refugee from Syria
