Western intelligence services examined Thursday a potential treasure trove of leaked ISIS registration documents, some of which were deemed likely to be authentic by the German intelligence service despite the doubts of many experts.The information, which could help track down current and former ISIS militants, was included in forms which new recruits had to fill out, British and German media reported.British broadcaster Sky News said it had shared with British security services documents with the identities of some 22,000 ISIS group members.German federal police spokesman Markus Koths said there was "a very high probability" that documents reported by German media as identifying German extremists were genuine.Romain Caillet, an independent extremism expert, also noted that some documents feature a second, circular logo not previously used on ISIS files.Syrian opposition news website Zaman al-Wasl said there were thousands of repetitions in the leaked documents and the names of only 1,700 people could be identified in the 22,000 documents.
