    Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office believes it is in possession of authentic Daesh documents and will make use of jihadists' personal details to counter terror threats, the agency’s spokesman said Thursday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — UK news channel Sky News reported earlier it had obtained a trove of documents from a disillusioned Daesh recruit that contain personal information of thousands of jihadists in 51 countries, including across Europe.

    Potential Daesh members had to fill in a 23-question form to join the terrorist group. The details included their names, phone numbers, addresses and family contacts.

    "The Bundeskriminalamt is aware of documents of the so-called Islamic State [Daesh]. We believe that there is a high probability that these are authentic documents. We will factor them into our efforts to investigate and repel threats," the agency’s spokesman Markus Koths told RIA Novosti.
