Every traveller coming into Europe will have their name checked against anti-terror watch lists, under a plan to be agreed by ministers today.

Border guards will scan all passports using computers to compare their details with those kept on wanted persons and suspected terrorists.

At the moment, European Union rules prevent countries in the Schengen Zone systematically vetting European citizens as they enter the 26-nation travel area.

But at an emergency summit in Brussels today, interior ministers will demand that is changed and put into force tighter passport checks.

The emergency meeting comes as French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the terrorist cell which carried out the Paris massacres took advantage of the refugee crisis to ‘slip in’ to France.

Serious questions have also been raised about security across Europe after the mastermind of the atrocities Abdelhamid Abaaoud was found to be in the heart of the French capital when it was thought he was in Syria.

He had previously boasted about moving freely around the continent to plot murder and yet he was still not picked up before the attacks.

One of the suicide bombers who attacked the Stade de France was also found to have used a fake Syrian passport in the name of Ahmad Al Mohammad to pass through Greece.
