Across Europe the hunt continues for suspects in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks.

Police in Geneva, Switzerland, have been seeking at least four suspects linked to ISIS after the CIA uncovered a plot there.

A Swiss official confirmed the suspects were four men whose photos were shown in a news report in a Swiss paper.

And in Paris, police have closed another mosque, seizing ISIS propaganda and ammunition from it.

Agence France Presse reports it's the third mosque to be closed in France since the Paris attacks four weeks ago.

French police also found Islamic extremist documents at the homes of the mosque leaders.

Meanwhile, top officials from Europe and the U.S., including U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, met in London Thursday where they agreed to closer cooperation in the fight against the Islamic State.

In London on Thursday, they agreed to share more information, fight radicalization, take tougher action to disrupt extremist activity and financing, and encourage communications firms to remove extremist content from the Internet.

And a key committee of EU lawmakers has approved a new plan to track extremist fighters, paving the way for the long-delayed system to be approved early next year.

The European Parliament Civil Liberties committee voted overwhelmingly Thursday to approve the airline passenger information system.

The plan grants law enforcement agencies access to information about air travelers for at least six months.
