German ‘IS jihadist’ in terror trial

A German jihadist accused of taking part in a special torture unit set up by the so-called Islamic State (IS) group in Syria has gone on trial amid high security in Duesseldorf.

Nils D., 25, was arrested on his return from Syria a year ago and is accused of membership of a terror group.

He is alleged to have joined an IS unit that tracked down and killed deserters.

    Track down & kill deserters, that suggests he’s operating inside enemy (European?) territory.

    “Special torture unit.” I guess you can say that while in Syria, he was a skiing instructor.
