Four Men Arrested For Alleged Terrorism Plot

Three people were arrested in Denmark and one in the Netherlands on suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack following a coordinated cross-border Danish-German police effort, Louise Breusch Rasmussen and Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen report for Reuters. Danish police said raids were ongoing across the country and were carried out at an early stage of the investigation. The Danish Security and Intelligence Service PET said in August that the threat towards Denmark had intensified after anti-Islam activists damaged several copies of the Koran over the summer. Police said they would increase their public presence in coming days, in particular in Copenhagen and around Jewish localities. Police said they had kept unchanged their terrorist alert level at 4 on a scale of 1-5, reflecting a “significant” threat. The three arrested in Denmark would be charged under the terrorism clause of the criminal code and put in front of a judge for preliminary questioning
