ISIS using “Headhunters” online to recruit youngsters from Germany

The has deployed “headhunters” on social media and various messaging sites to recruit youngster with somewhat rebellious mind in Germany, some as young as 13 or 14, the head of the country’s domestic intelligence agency said on Thursday.

“On social media networks there are practically headhunters who approach young people and get them interested in this (Islamist) ideology,” Maassen told foreign reporters in Berlin.

He cited the cases of a German-Moroccan girl, Safia S, 16, who is accused of stabbing a policeman at a train station in Hanover in February last year, and a 12-year-old German-Iraqi boy who tried to detonate two explosive devices in the western town of Ludwigshafen in December.

Nearly 20 percent of around 900 people are from who have been recruited by Islamic State to join the fight in and are women, some as young as 13 or 14, Maassen said.

Around 548 Islamists are being considered a security risk, but German law does not allow for their arrest until they have committed a crime, Maassen said.
