Demonstrators with signs reading "Peace"

EUROPE’S 9/11 explores in-depth the phenomenon of homegrown terrorism through the lens of the bombings in Madrid, Spain and the connections between those bombers and Al Qaeda cell activities in Milan, Italy and the Van Gogh murder in the Netherlands. 

European governments face ever increasing difficulties in identifying potential terrorists among the radical Islamists and in protecting citizens from these internal threats.
