Interior ministry bans Salafist group
Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière ordered the dissolving of salafist organisation Tauhid Germany on Thursday, saying that the group radicalized youth and encouraged them to travel to Syria to fight for Isis.
"Today's ban is a clear signal to the militant Jihadist scene," said the Interior Minister in a statement published on the ministry's website.
"Organisations like Tauhid Germany are a danger to civil peace. They prey on young people and push them into radicalism, including recruiting them for battle in Syria and Iraq."
