Therapist warned of possible suicide by Ansbach attacker

Berlin, July 27 (IANS) The therapist treating Syrian asylum seeker Mohammed Daleel, who blew himself up on Sunday next to an outdoor festival in the German town of Ansbach, had warned in a report that there was a possibility of Daleel staging a suicide bombing.

According to reports published on Wednesday by German newspaper Bild, Daleel spoke to the therapist multiple times before the suicide. Fifteen persons were wounded in the attack after Daleel recorded a video in which he swore allegiance to Islamic State militant group.

Daleel’s suicidal inclinations began to surface in his medical records in early 2015, when he was being treated at the therapist’s clinic in Ansbach, Efe news reported.

According to the therapist’s report, Daleel confessed that he had made preparations in case it was decided to return him to Bulgaria as he had been accepted as a refugee there.

Daleel’s application seeking German asylum was rejected in December 2014 and on July 13, 2016, Daleel was informed that he had 30 days to leave the country.
