The men were caught with extreme propaganda.

Five ISIS fighters were seized as they attempted to cross the Bulgarian-Macedonian border with gruesome videos and ISIS propaganda on their phones. The terrorist suspects assumed the identities of refugees.

It was reported that the men were detained by Bulgarian authorities near the Gyushevo border. The men, aged somewhere between 20 and 24, were stopped by a border guard, who they even tried to bribe with a "wad of dollars."

Despite their poor attempt to pass by, the men were searched and ISIS propaganda, particularly Jihadist prayers and decapitation videos, were found on their phones. The men chose to cross in a wooded area and took a car from an accomplice who had crossed legally from Macedonia.

The Bulgarian State Agency for National Security or DANS has taken matters into its own hands, leading the investigation under the serious supervision of the regional prosecutor's office in Kyustendil.

Bulgaria recently completed a 15-foot high razor wire clad fence along its south-eastern border with Turkey to control the mass movement of migrants from the Middle East and Asia into Europe. However, the Gyueshevo border checkpoint where the men chose to cross is located on Bulgaria's western border with Macedonia. The men most likely decided to enter from that location to strategically avoid the new strict border controls on the other side of the country.

Following the recent efforts of a terror attack on an Amsterdam-Paris train, European governments have considered revising the Schengen border code that removed systematic border controls across most of Europe.

"When ISIS say they want to flood our continent with half a million Islamic extremists they mean it, and there is nothing in this document [Common European Asylum Policy] that will stop them," stated UKIP leader Nigel Farage. "I fear we face a direct threat to our civilization if we allow large numbers of people from that war torn region into Europe."
