German Intel Chief: IS Attack in Europe Just a Matter of Time


Germany's intelligence head said Sunday that his state, like the UK, France and other western nations, faces a very high danger of citizens returning to conduct terror attacks from Syria and Iraq, where they are fighting in the ranks of the extremist Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

"We have to expect that these people will return and commit attacks here," acknowledged Hans-Georg Maassen, head of Germany's BfV domestic intelligence agency. He cited a "greater abstract risk" of attacks in Germany, reports Reuters.
