German prosecutors indict alleged IS member

German prosecutors say they have indicted an alleged member of the Islamic State group who is accused of advocating the killing of "infidels" in a propaganda video and violating Germany's war weapons control act.

Federal prosecutors said Friday that 27-year-old German citizen Harry S., whose last name was not given in accordance with German privacy law, joined a special Islamic State unit in April 2015 in Syria. He received military education including special combat training and using automatic rifles, but left the unit abruptly in early June.

In mid-June he appeared on a German-language IS video calling for viewers to join jihad and, if they're not able to leave for Syria, to attack and kill "infidels" in Germany.

He was arrested upon his return to Germany in July.
