Three months after the attack on the Sikh Temple in the North neighbourhood the public prosecutor’s Office has accused three young Salafists from Essen, Gelsenkirchen and Schermbeck food – attempted murder, aggravated assault and bringing about an explosion of explosives. Three participants in an Indian wedding ceremony have been injured in the attack on April 16 on the Bersonstraße.

Hunter: not to prevent stroke
The accused is Mohammed B. Essen, the Gelsenkirchen Yusuf T. (both 16) and the 17–year–old Tolga I. from Schermbeck. Mohammed B. and Yusuf T., who set fire to themselves made bomb, are arrested only a few days after the attack. The Evag video cameras had filmed it. Tolga I. is with instigators.
Apparently the teenager jihadists have a whats app group have radicalized, which calls itself “Supporters of the Islamic caliphate”. Twelve mostly Turks guys should belong to her. Against two the also detained Muhammad Ö. (17) of Gelsenkirchen and Hilmi T. (20) from Münster, other members, will be determined separately.
The case of temple bomber is a political issue. Three young people took part in the “Signpost” NRW prevention programme actually protecting them against Islamists hate propaganda. Instead Yusuf t & co have radicalized more or less under the supervision of the Youth Welfare Office. The suspects were known to the security authorities for a long time. Still, North Rhine-Westphalia Interior Minister Ralf Jäger has increased police protection. The attack was unable to prevent.
“Good, that they are from the street”
Behind the scenes is been wrestled violently over the question, whether the explosion a terrorist attack and the whats app group to a terrorist organization. In this case, the Chief Federal Prosecutor in Karlsruhe would have to take the Essen event in itself. He didn’t do it, head-shaking evokes among seasoned investigators. Puzzled about the motive. Karlsruhe don’t want true, that the ‘Islamic State’ terrorist militia holt probably radicalized teenagers from German children and incites a terrorist attack?
The Islamic scholar Michael Kiefer, which currently evaluates the chat logs of whats app group for January to April, the explosive explosion classified not dumb young prank as a terrorist attack. “It is good that they are off the road, they are really fire hazard,” the scientist says.
