Berlin doctor ‘recruited mentally-ill man for Isis’

German police on Thursday arrested a doctor suspected of having recruited a man of limited mental capacity to fight for the Islamic State organisation in Iraq.

Investigators accused the 33-year-old German doctor of brainwashing the 24-year-old man with jihadist videos and later paying for his one-way ticket to Syria and Iraq.

The younger man, also a German national, subsequently blew himself up in northern Iraqi city Baiji, killing at least 12 Iraqi soldiers, said prosecutors in a statement.
