The Lone Wolf and the Stray Dog
Two botched attacks in Europe in recent days signal that Islamist terror has entered a new phase, security officials say, one that is more disorganized and less sophisticated but risks spawning more attackers determined to kill using any means at their disposal. Because of a lack of direct training and know-how, many of this new breed of assailant fail. Still, the absence of a connection to terror networks makes it difficult for intelligence services to track these individuals, and their often unsophisticated weapons—such as knives or cars—are easy to obtain. So authorities fear the attacks will increase. “We may be entering an era not of lone wolf, but stray dog attacks,” said one Western security official. The changing nature of the attacks also reflects improved security in Europe, but officials warn it would be reckless to underestimate the continuing threat of extremist groups.
