German spy chief warns ISIS wants to attack

The militant group released a video on Tuesday suggesting it may carry out further attacks in the West after the Brussels bombings and Paris attacks, naming London, Berlin and Rome as possible targets, according to Reuters.

Hans-Georg Maassen told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag the group wanted to carry out attacks against Germany and German interests, but added: “At the moment we don’t have any knowledge of any concrete terrorist attack plans in Germany.”

Asked how many Islamists in Germany were considered highly dangerous, Maassen said there were about 1,100 Islamists who were seen as a potential terrorism risk, according to the report.

“I’m particularly concerned about the many unaccompanied minors – this group is being deliberately targeted,” he said, adding that he saw a “huge radicalization potential” in these attempts to recruit people.
