Germany’s Islamist Terrorism Hotline Is Blowing Up With Calls

“We continue to have a high threat level in Germany,” BfV President Hans-Georg Maassen said at a press conference Wednesday, according to Die Welt. “Over the course of 2016, Germany has become significantly higher rated for ISIS.”

A hotline for Islamist terrorism received 1,100 calls in 2016 — more than a doubling compared to the record set in 2015. Maassen said the information is getting more specific, and every single lede is investigated by authorities.
