The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) – Germany’s domestic intelligence service – said it had concrete knowledge of more than 340 cases of attempted jihadist recruitment among migrants.

BfV president Hans-Georg Maassen said: “There are more than 340 cases which have become known to us. These are only the ones we know about. There are probably more cases.”

Mr Maassen said refugee families were being given information about how to spot radical Islamists at their recruitment work and to report them to authorities.

He said: “It gives us concern if the Salafists and other Islamists are allowed to recruit in this way.”

The warnings were issued as Chancellor Angeka Merkel’s open-door immigration policy comes coming under severe strain with politicians from all sides demanding changes to the system and protestors taking to the streets to demonstrate against the massive influx of migrants.

Germany is trying to toughen up its anti-terror laws in the wake of a spate of recent attacks which sent shockwaves throughout the nation.
