On one side of the internet chat was an Islamist extremist who had just got himself a job with Germany's domestic intelligence agency.The man, described by German media as a former bank employee who was married with children, started with the BfV in April and was tasked with surveillance of Salafists, adherents to an ultra-conservative form of Islam that can also turn violent, Herrenbrueck said.The agency said that once it had uncovered the man, who had used a pseudonym online, it turned the case over to Duesseldorf prosecutors.The suspect, whose identity has not been released, is now in custody and partially confessed to investigators, Herrenbrueck said.
