Germany was warned in advance that a Syrian who blew himself up last month might carry out a “spectacular” suicide attempt if it tried to deport him, BBC Newsnight has learned.
Mohammed Daleel was due to be deported when he detonated a bomb in the Bavarian town of Ansbach on 24 July.
A 25-page psychological assessment written more than a year before mentioned his “extreme spirit”.
It was sent to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.
It warned that attempts to deport Mr Daleel could result in a “spectacular” suicide attempt.
