Austria: Investigation after arrest of 17 year terrorist sees 12 year old picked up.

(Wien) After the arrest in Vienna of a 17 year old Albanian youth on Friday, the authorities have continued with their investigations and identified a 12 year old boy as part of a suspected Islamic extremist network in the capital. As the child is so young, the police are unable to arrest him but he has been detained and is being questioned. 

It has also come out in the wash that the 17 year old had recently visited Germany and had experimented building bombs with a 21 year old near the western city of Düsseldorf.  That person was picked up by the German police last night. In both the Austrian and German arrests police believe they have foiled imminent attacks in the respective countries.
