‘These children are living time bombs’: Head of German intelligence agency says returning ISIS families poses a ‘massive danger’

The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency has warned of the ‘massive danger’ posed by returning ‘ brainwashed’ ISIS women and children.

‘There are children who have undergone brainwashing in the ISIS areas and are radicalised to a great extent,’ said Hans-Georg Maassen.

He said Germany should consider repealing laws restricting surveillance of minors under the age of 14 to prepare for the increased risk of attacks by children as young as nine.
