German intelligence chief warns Islamists could target refugees
by Sabine Siebold
The head of Germany's domestic intelligence services warned on Tuesday that radical Islamists could seek to recruit young refugees coming to the country.
"There is a big worry that Islamists in Germany, on the pretext of offering humanitarian help, could try to take advantage of the migrants' situation to convert and recruit those seeking asylum," said Hans-Georg Maassen, the president of the BfV domestic intelligence agency.
"Our attention is particularly focussed on unaccompanied young refugees who could be easy prey for Islamists," Maassen said.
