Topic: Germany arrests Islamist preacher on charges of recruiting militants


A German Islamist preacher was arrested in Germany on Tuesday for recruiting fighters for a militant group in Syria and purchasing and delivering military equipment, the Federal Prosecutor's Office said. Sven Lau, 35, is suspected of recruiting Germans living in and around the western German city of Duesseldorf to fight abroad and was believed to have recruited two fighters already, the office said in a statement. Hundreds of Germans have left the country to join Islamic State in Syria and Iraq since 2012, the interior ministry says.
