    Germany failed to deport more than 50 Islamists, regarded as potentially dangerous, despite having rejected their asylum applications, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Some 50 rejected asylum seekers are among those who the police believe to be posing a threat to public order, Der Spiegel magazine said Friday, adding that a total of 548 people are on the list of dangerous Islamists.

    In September, Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere warned that the country was facing a record number (over 500) of potentially dangerous Islamists, who could commit serious politically-motivated crimes.

    In early December, German media reported that the number of radical Islamists in German prisons had increased by 30 percent this year, surpassing 150.
