Fake Attack Plot: Germany jails Syrian refugee

A German court yesterday sentenced a Syrian refugee to seven years in jail for fighting with the Islamic State group, but found that he had lied about being part of a terror cell planning an attack in Duesseldorf.

Saleh A. had presented himself to police in Paris in 2016, claiming to be a part of an IS "sleeper cell" planning a gun and suicide bomb assault in the old town centre of the western German city of Duesseldorf.

He was then extradited to Germany in September 2016 and remanded in custody.

But during his trial he admitted to lying about the involvement of two alleged co-plotters, and prosecutors came to the conclusion that he had invented the whole terror plot story.
