Berlin police has arrested two Islamists who were planning for a “serious act of violence”.
Police officials said they carried out two raids targeting alleged extremists suspected of planning a terrifying assault.
Police spokeswoman Patricia Braemer said the two men, aged 28 and 46, had been “in contact with the Islamist movement”.
Officers gave no further details about the alleged plan, other than to confirm no arms or explosives had been found when the pair were arrested in the German capital.
The arrests were made after special forces raided an Islamic cultural centre in the western district Charlottenburg and a building in Britz.
