German authorities have confirmed the deportation of a suspected Isis member to Tunisia, shortly after Germany's highest court rejected his appeal. A report on the Al Awsat site notes that he also lost a last-ditch bid for a stay at the European Court of Human Rights. Hesse State Interior Minister Peter Beuth said the suspect, identified as 'Haikel S', was handed over to authorities in his homeland on Wednesday. The man was arrested in 2017 on suspicion of being a recruiter and smuggler for Isis and of planning an attack. Tunisia accused him of involvement in the 2015 attack on a Tunis museum that left 21 people dead and a 2016 attack on the border town of Ben Guerdane.
