Four arrested over Isis plot to attack Düsseldorf

In a statement, German federal prosecutors confirmed that three Syrian nationals had been arrested and their homes searched: 25-year-old Mahood B., 27-year-old Hamza C. and 31-year-old Abd Arahman A.K.

A further warrant was issued for a 25-year-old Syrian, Saleh A., currently under arrest in France.

The three arrested in Germany lived in North Rhine-Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg and Brandenburg.

The target of the attack plan is alleged to have been the historic city centre of the North Rhine-Westphalian capital.

Prosecutors said that two suicide bombers were to blow themselves up on Heinrich-Heine-Allee, a broad street with a number of public transport links including U-Bahn and tram stations.

Then the other attackers were supposed to kill more passers-by with rifles and explosives.              h/t
