Denmark’s official policy of reintegration of Syrian jihadis needs a rethink:
A Danish man arrested in Spain on suspicion of fighting with Islamic State (Isis) jihadists in Syria was planning to buy weapons in the country, the interior ministry said Monday.
Ahmed Samsam, 27, who was detained on Friday in Malaga in southern Spain and put under official investigation at the weekend, is suspected of having fought in the ranks of Isis for more than three years.
In a statement, the ministry said photos posted on social networks showed him holding weapons, explosives and symbols of the jihadist group whose control over parts of Syria and Iraq is being eroded by Iraqi forces on the one side and US-backed fighters in Syria.
“An expert in handling weapons and explosives, he was about to acquire weapons and bulletproof vests in Spain,” it said.
