The persons all asylants from Syria and Iraq were arrested in 6 raids by the German special operations commando SEK in Berlin’s districts Neukölln, Köpenick, Mariendorf and Zehlendorf.

Drugs and weaponry were seized in the operation on Wednesday and investigators are now checking if the suspects are linked to the Islamic State (IS). Today another suspect was arrested in the German city of Essen. According to police he was under surveillance for some time and planned a terroristic attack.
