Denmark arrests 4 Muslim terrorists suspected of being ISIS Members

Copenhagen Police said on Thursday that four people in the Greater Copenhagen area had been arrested on suspicion of having joined the terror group Isis in Syria.

“The arrests took place as part of the efforts against people who are recruited to terror groups in war-torn areas in Syria and northern Iraq and on the basis of cooperation between authorities involved in the coordinated action against foreign fighters,” Copenhagen Police wrote in a press release.

All four were suspected of breaking Denmark’s terrorism law while in Syria, police said.

Under Danish terrorism law, “letting oneself be recruited to commit acts of (terrorism)” is punishable with up to six years in jail.

    Please remember, the appropriate word is Daesh not ISIS. The Toronto Star doesn’t want anyone to confuse the religion of peace with terrorism.
