1ST LEAD Potential Islamist threats to Germany include women and children By Christiane Jacke, dpa

Berlin (dpa) - German security authorities have identified several dozen women and under-age youths as potential Islamist threats willing to carry out terrorist attacks in Germany.

Among the 720 people in Germany currently listed as Islamist threats, a low single-digit percentage are women and children, security sources told dpa on Saturday, giving for the first time an estimate of the scale of the problem.

German intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maassen recently pointed to the increasing risk of attacks by radicalized women and children.

The head of the German intelligence service (BfV) made special reference to women and children who were returning to Germany from areas previously controlled by Islamic State.

The women "identify so strongly with the Islamic State ideology that they can also be justifiably described as jihadists," he said, but did not specify how many there were.

The vast majority of those referred to in Germany as people considered a danger to the public are men.

Three Islamist attacks in Germany in the past year have been carried out by minors. One foiled attack was planned by a 12 year old. None of these were women.

There are several women who have returned from Islamic State territories and are currently in detention.

Islamic State has lost vast swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria it had previously controlled after a successful fightback by government forces.
