German Isil fighter who returned from Syria denounces group as un-Islamic
A German former fighter for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has given a rare interview detailing the atrocities of the terror organisation, warning potential recruits that it has "nothing to do with Islam."
The 26-year-old man, named only as Ebrahim B under German privacy laws, recounted his experiences in a highly unusual interview before he stands trial in August charged with being a member of a terrorist organisation.
In an interview from a German prison with broadcasters NDR and WDR and the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, he described how he was recruited at a mosque in Wolfsburg in northern Germany.
