Young Muslims at risk of radicalisation in Vienna
A study by the City of Vienna shows that a high proportion of Muslim teenagers in the Austrian capital are at risk of being radicalised.
The study found that 85 percent of young people who are in contact with a youth worker have an immigration background, and that 27 percent of those teenagers who are Muslim show strong sympathy for jihadism, and violent and anti-Western thinking.
The government in Vienna says that it wants to identify this group of "latently vulnerable" youth and establish a dialogue with them, before they become radicalised.
