Hanover teen stabbed police officer ‘on orders from Isis’

A 15-year-old girl who knifed a policewoman at Hanover’s main train station in February may have been acting under orders from Isis terrorists, media reported on Tuesday.

Teenager Safia S. described in chat conversations how she had travelled to Turkey and been in contact with “employees” of Isis, the Süddeutsche Zeitung and broadcasters NDR and WDR reported.

The chat logs further show that rather than travelling on to Syria from Turkey, Safia S. had had a “change of plans” when Isis members asked her to go back to Germany and cause a “surprise for the unbelievers,” police sources told journalists.

“They told me it would be of great use,” she reportedly said. Other passages show the girl talking about a “martyrdom operation”.
