London, Great Britain, March 11: Intelligence analysts say the leak of more than 20,000 stolen files from the Islamic State group will be a significant boost for western security agencies.
The files are said to be recruitment questionnaires that identify thousands of supporters of the terror group from about 50 different countries. They were leaked to British and German media outlets and appear to contain names, addresses and phone numbers of Islamic State applicants.
John Sawers, the former head of Britain's overseas intelligence service MI6, said the information would help authorities track down recruiters for the group. Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said the information could be used to prosecute IS fighters and help authorities track recruiters. British broadcaster Sky News said a disillusioned former member handed over the documents on a memory stick that had been stolen from the head of the group's internal security police.
