German on Trial Accused of Being in IS ‘Storm Trooper’ Unit

“A 25-year-old German has gone on trial accused of having been part of the Islamic State group’s secret police. The man, identified only as Nils D., is charged with membership in a terrorist organization and faces up to 10 years in prison. Prosecutors allege he belonged to an IS ‘storm trooper’ unit that hunted spies and deserters, guarded prisoners and disposed of their bodies. At the trial opening Wednesday, D. told the regional court in Duesseldorf that he converted to Islam in 2011, quickly became radicalized and traveled to Syria in August 2013.”
