Germany’s secret service have received more than 100 tip-offs that ISIS militants are among the migrants claiming asylum in the country, claims spy chief
The head of the domestic intelligence agency (BfV), Hans-Georg Maassen, mentioned the figure at a discussion in the Interior Ministry, according to local media.
It comes a day after police conducted raids on suspected Islamist militants at locations across the country, including two refugee centres.

Two men and a woman were arrested during massive police raids in the hunt for four Algerians being sought for their suspected links with ISIS in Syria.
