So it would seem that surveillance of beachheads is an ongoing thing, but to what avail if they can’t wiretap them?
Berlin truck killer ‘visited 15 mosques’ and contacted ISIS-linked jihadis prior to attack
THE twisted jihadi who drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin earlier this month visited 15 mosques and contacted two ISIS-linked individuals prior to the deplorable attack.
Anis Amri, who brutally murdered 12 people in the sickening assault last Monday, is believed to have been in contact with fellow extremists while in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, according to German media reports.
He had applied for asylum under eight different aliases in western Germany – one of which he used in Oberhausen.
By February 2016, Amri was mainly located in Berlin – despite the fact he should not have been allowed to leave North Rhine-Westphalia due to asylum restrictions.
The state criminal investigation office in Düsseldorf took another three months to officially classify Amri as a threat – issuing the warning on May 10.
In Berlin, the killer had allegedly frequent contact with people whom German security services claimed had ties to the radical Salafist-Islamist scene.
