In an interview from a German prison with broadcasters NDR and WDR and the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, he described how he was recruited at a mosque in Wolfsburg in northern Germany.
He said he had a difficult time at school and had recently broken up with his fiancée.
“If I had been picked up by a rocker gang in Jamaica or by Hells Angels in America or something, I would have gone along with it,” he said. “I stumbled and fell into the wrong hands”.
Yea that’s the Ticket: I was misunderstood!
