Germany: Three Moderate Muslims Arrested in Syria-Linked Terrorism Bust

German authorities arrested three people with alleged ties to an Al Qaeda-linked rebel group on Monday in police raids across the country, the federal prosecutor’s office said.

Two of the suspects, a German and a Turk, are believed to have travelled to Syria last year and joined the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), according to Middle East Online, which Berlin – like most Western countries – has proscribed as a terrorist organization.

The third person, a woman, was taken into custody on suspicion of providing 4,800 euros ($6,600) to the group.
