German spy and gay porn actor arrested over bomb plot

A German spy's chat room name was also the name he used to act in porn

Thursday, December 1, 2016

A German spy who was also a gay porn actor has been arrested for offering to help infiltrate his own agency’s defences.

He was a full time member of the German equivalent of MI6 and was using a chat room also frequented by Islamist militants.

The man offered to organise a bomb attack “in the name of Allah” on the agency's headquarters in Cologne.

It later turned out that he also used his chat room name to appear in gay porn films, according to the Washington Post.

His offer to infiltrate the agency's defences was spotted as other German agents monitored the chat room.

The man, who is married and a father of four, was identified after other agents spoke to him and he gave enough information away to be arrested the next day.

The spy was arrested on suspicion of violating state secrecy laws and preparing to commit a violent act. The man admitted that he converted to Islam in 2014.
