A Syrian postgraduate student has been arrested after he expressed his support for Islamic State in an hour long YouTube video. The video was uploaded in January in Arabic with English subtitles, but was only brought to the attention of the German authorities when fellow students recognised the man from a shortened version made by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Tobias Huch, a politician with the Free Democratic Party of Germany told n-tv: “This case not only shows that ISIS is already among us, but also that it’s Salafist supporters will continue to be active in our inner cities for as long as their ideology remains unopposed. The public authorities must act quickly and consistently deport ISIS supporters.”
