German court upholds conviction of teenage IS-sympathiser 19.4.2018 General News
A German appeals court today upheld a ruling against a teenage girl who badly wounded a police officer with a kitchen knife, affirming that she did act on behalf of the Islamic State group. German-Moroccan Safia S., who in February 2016 stabbed a police officer in the neck at Hanover's main railway station, had "agreed on the concrete act" with the jihadists, said the court, throwing out her appeal.
