Two men have been apprehended by German authorities for allegedly plotting a “significant criminal act against state security’ reports say.
German special-forces arrested the two suspects in a raid close to the Britz section of the German capital after a search was conducted on an Islamic cultural center, police said.
Berlin’s attorney general is heading up the ongoing investigation and police say “a suspected dangerous object” found in a vehicle linked to the suspects prompted an evacuation of nearby residences.
The suspects, whose identities have not been released, are 28 and 46, according to police, and the German newspaper Der Tagesspeigel reports that one of them was Tunisian and the other Syrian.
