Syrians released in Germany after arrest for suspected terrorist plot

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Frankfurt (dpa) - Six Syrian nationals were released from custody on Wednesday after being arrested in Germany on suspicion of membership in the Islamic State terrorist group and planning an attack on German soil.

The prosecutor‘s office in Frankfurt said there was insufficient evidence to charge the men, who were arrested on Tuesday in raids involving some 500 police officers in four German cities.

"They are being released as we speak," a spokesman for the prosecutor‘s office told dpa.

An analysis of the men‘s mobile telephones was "at the current time" unable to prove suspicions the individuals had been planning an attack.

Investigators also found no evidence that the men, aged between 20 and 28, had joined Islamic State, but could show connections to the extremist group.

Germany has been on high alert since a series of terrorist attacks in 2016 that culminated in a truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market in December in which 12 people were killed.

Many of those involved in terrorist attacks entered Germany as part of a large influx of refugees from countries including Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan since 2014.
