From July to September, Frontex supported Operation Neptune 2 with two experts to assist in sea border control. The operation was targeted at suspected foreign terrorist fighters potentially using maritime routes between North Africa and Southern Europe. It was coordinated by Interpol and supported by the World Customs Organization (WCO). As a result, more than a dozen suspected foreign terrorist fighters could be detected travelling across the Mediterranean.
