TV Show Claims Bonn is Center for Radical Islam

October 1, 2003

According to the German public television program ARD television magazine Panorama, the city of Bonn is becoming a center for radical Muslims. German security forces have reported an increased influx of radical Islamists to what was once the capital city, the report said. Many appear to be affiliated with the King Fahd Academy in the Bad Godesberg neighborhood. Bonn police told the show that searches had been made "based on interstate discoveries." The people in question are suspected of having contact with the al Qaeda network.
