Invisible and dangerous: The Salafist scene in North Rhine-Westphalia

Today 14:31 GMT

Missionary work happens privately and indoors — in contrast to the past, when new Salafist converts recited the profession of faith openly in German market places.

The Salafist scene in North Rhine-Westphalia has around 3,000 adherents according to the state's BfV office, 800 of whom are classified as ready to use violence. Jihadi-inspired Salafists are prepared to use violence for their vision of an Islamic state.
