German federal police said Thursday they believed leaked registration files of ISIS are very likely to be genuine, after a newspaper reported on documents identifying German extremists.

 

“The Federal Criminal Office has knowledge of this type of document of the so-called Islamic State,” said police spokesman Markus Koths, referring to ISIS registration forms reported on by Sueddeutsche Zeitung and two public broadcasters.

 

“We assume that there is a very high probability that they are genuine documents,” Koths said in a short statement. “We are therefore taking them into account as part of our law enforcement and security measures.”
