Austria: Custody extended for wounded Isis teen

A court in Vienna has extended the police custody of a 16-year-old who was arrested three weeks ago after returning to Austria from Syria where he had joined Islamic State (Isis) militants.

The court said that he was a flight risk and there was a danger he would try to rejoin jihadist fighters.

He was arrested at Vienna airport in mid-March with serious injuries, and told police that he had been wounded in a bomb attack in Raqqa, Syria.

Why don’t they just ship him back?

    With a fifth column and a colossally gullible public, the west would seem doomed.

    Hmmm, he goes and fights for the terrorists.
    He gets wounded and comes back for medical care.

    Is he a Khadr ?

    Why don’t they just summarily execute him.
