BERLIN, November 1. /TASS/. About 1,000 people in Germany are supporters of the Islamic terrorism, and several hundred of them in future may organise acts of terror in the country, chief of the federal authority on criminal affairs, BKA, Jorg Ziercke said in an interview with Die Welt, published on Saturday.
He said in the interview that intelligence services had been watching closely 230 people, who may “organise illegal actions of big scale.” Back in 2010, people of the kind totalled about 120 in Germany.
Another 300 Islamists are of “major interest to BKA.” This group of potential terrorists “may offer logistics assistance in preparations for a terror attack,” Ziercke said.
“Most threat comes from fanatics, who are acting on their own, and from small groups,” the official said. However, he said, German intelligence services are controlling the situation. No reasons for panic, he said.
