    Hi!

    This is from CNN new. The source is : 'One ISIS attack every 84 hours' spurs dread and anger in Europe - CNN.com

    What does "flagged individuals" mean in the context?
    I tried some dictionaries but couldn't find any meaning that matches with the sentence.

    Hullo DHC. It's definition v³ in the WordRef dictionary:
    It can be applied to people as well: if you flag someone, you mark them for attention:)

    Note that the question mark in the quoted material should not be there -- Sarkozy is making a statement, not asking a question.
