According to Germany’s public international broadcaster, Deutsche Welle, Abshir A. – a Somali – and Ozkan C. – a Turk – are “German men”. Amusingly, the Somali “who was born in the Somali capital, Mogadishu” is further described as a “Hessian radical”.
A court in the German city of Frankfurt on Friday separately found two German nationals guilty of joining foreign Islamist militant groups.
The court sentenced the first, Abshir A., to two years and ten months in prison for joining al-Shabab in Somalia, an Islamist terrorist group linked to al-Qaida. It sentenced the second, Ozkan C., to two years and eight months for being a member of Junud al-Sham in Syria, a Sunni militant group.
The Hessian radical
A., who was born in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, but grew up in the German state of Hesse, fought along al-Shabab militants between early 2012 and early 2014.
