According to reports, the man is suspected of working for Daesh's Amaq news agency, an official propaganda outlet of the terrorist organization. Among other things, Amaq announces claims of responsibility for the organization's attacks, including the latest terrorist acts in London.
"The suspect arrived in Germany in early September 2015. Once he arrived, he acted as a contact person between the Amaq news agency, which is considered part of Islamic State [Daesh], and potential terrorists," the statement on the official website of Germany's Public Prosecutor General said.
Experts had long assumed that Daesh had media operatives in various countries because of the rapid publication of their announcements of responsibility and because their statements are often translated into numerous languages, including German.
The case of Mohammed G. could serve as proof of the possible existence of a large network of Amaq correspondents in Western countries.
