Germany: Police arrest 3 Syrian IS followers over terrorist attack plot

(Düsseldorf) Three Syrian men suspected of planning an attack in Düsseldorf for ISIS have been arrested in Germany. The plot was thankfully thwarted by a fourth suspect, who went to French authorities with details on this planned attack earlier this year.

The three men identified only as Hamza C., 27; Mahmood B., 25; and Abd Arahman A. K., 31 were arrested in three different German states.

Their plan called for two suicide attackers to blow themselves up in central Düsseldorf (Heinrich-Heine-Allee) and then for further assailants to kill as many people as possible using firearms and explosives in the confusion.

As somebody who lived in Dusseldorf for 6 years, I am happy that these idiots have been taken off the streets.
