School teacher Anette Walden knew Mohammad Daleel, the Syrian refugee who killed himself by carrying out a suicide bombing at a music festival this month.
She claims she used to know him well because of her voluntary work supporting refugees and never would have thought he would carry out a terrorist attack.
“I know he didn’t do Ramadan, we had talked about that. He was not a soldier for IS, not at all,” Walden told BBC.
His July 24 bombing injured 15 people. According to Express, he left behind a video pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Walden no longer feels positive about Germany's role in the Syrian refugee 'crisis'.
“I just told my friend; everybody needs to go back home,” she said. “I’m not willing to go out of my way and help because I’m afraid you’re friendly and actually you turn out to be totally different.”
