Terror Investigation: Germany Attackers Had Contact with Suspected IS Members, by Andreas Ulrich.
Transcripts of chats obtained by German authorities indicate that the two men involved in attacks in the German cities of Ansbach and Würzburg had repeated contact with suspected members of Islamic State via telephone numbers registered in Saudi Arabia …
In chats conducted prior to the attack, an IS contact man suggested to the 17-year-old that he drive a car into a mass of people. The perpetrator rejected the suggestion, justifying himself by saying he didn’t have a driver’s license. Instead, Ahmadzai announced, he would board a train and attack the first passengers that are convenient.
