Denmark's jihadist rehab: school, sport and Islam
by Sören Billing
Young men who have fought alongside Isis in Syria are welcomed back into Aarhus by a controversial rehab programme that has shown signs of success despite being condemned by many as too soft and naive.
How do you turn around a young man who is determined to destroy the West? In Aarhus, you take him to a cafe or a public library and talk about football.
