Brother of convicted ‘IS’ supporter Safia goes on trial in Germany

The trial began Monday of an 18-year-old accused of attempting to murder “infidels” by throwing two Molotov cocktails into the entrance of a shopping mall.

Both devices failed to ignite and no one was injured in the attack injured. The man, identified only as Saleh S. in line with German laws to protect the privacy of defendants, has been in psychiatric custody since December.

Authorities say the teenager had hoped to “spread fear and terror in the population.”
