DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. November 29, 2016, 9:56 PM (IDT)
A German citizen employed by Germany's domestic intelligence agency has been arrested on accusations he made Islamist declarations on the internet and revealed internal agency material, the agency said on Tuesday.
A spokesman for the Bundesverfassungsschutz (BfV) declined to provide details on the man's position at the agency or say when he joined. He also declined to comment on a report in Die Welt newspaper that the 51-year-old had planned to explode a bomb at the agency's central office in Cologne.
Der Spiegel magazine reported on its website that the agency first became aware of the man's activities about four weeks ago.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
