An employee of Germany's BND was arrested for allegedly passing classified materials to the Islamist group. The suspect, a citizen of Germany, offered to send confidential information to the people with whom he communicated on the Internet.
"The Federal office for the protection of the Constitution, failed to disclose a secret Islamist among their employees," said the representative of the organization Stefan Meyer. "He is accused presented himself under a false name in Islamist terms in the Internet, and passed the inside information in Internet chat rooms."
Mayer says that so far "there is no evidence that there is a real risk to the safety of the Federal Bureau and its employees." Little information was given. We only know that the suspect is a German citizen, who was recently hired by the Agency. Earlier this month, German authorities announced that the Islamic organization was responsible for recruiting more than 140 young people who joined the conflict in Syria. Federal police in September announced that 800 German citizens went to Syria to join the conflict.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel in July, promised to increase security and improve counter-terrorist, after 3 attacks allegedly carried out by the refugees. Merkel has been criticized for its policy towards refugees, which she allowed into the country. Germany poured more than a million asylum-seekers in 2015.
