Muslim with suspected terrorist links arrested in Switzerland

Swiss police have arrested a man for suspected links to terrorist organisations, the federal prosecutor said on Wednesday. He is one of two suspects, of Turkish origins, being investigated for recruiting people to Islamic State or related organisations.

More than 100 officers searched premises, including a ‘place of prayer’, in the southern Swiss canton of Ticino. The joint raids were part of two separate investigations by canton Ticino prosecutors and the Federal Attorney General’s office.
