Nothing to do with Islam: German police raid Berlin mosque in anti-terror investigation

A mosque was among a number of properties that German authorities raided in Berlin as part of probe into an alleged jihadi cell involved in terrorist activities. Police searched the offices annexed to the religious site in the central Tempelhof-Schöneberg district in a 22 September dawn raid targeting individuals suspected of recruiting fighters for the Islamic State (Isis) group in Syria.

Another seven addresses were visited by police as part of the same operation that saw hundreds of officers deployed across the capital. Police said the raids followed a six-month investigation into a group that allegedly planned and incited acts of terrorism.
