    Germany’s federal prosecution has accused a teenager of supporting the Daesh jihadist group by proofreading and translating its propaganda materials, according to a statement released Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The 18-year-old German national, identified as Mikail S., is suspected of having been in contact with Mohamed M., an Daesh propaganda man, since mid-2016. The teen has been in custody since his arrest on July 14.

    According to the federal prosecutor’s office, the suspect expressed his readiness to translate English, Turkish and German texts and check them for linguistic errors. Between June and July 2016, he submitted one translation and corrected eight texts, some of which were published in an Daesh online magazine.
