Eleven people were arrested in Germany on suspicion of planning an Islamic extremist terror attack. They were all released after no weapons or explosives were found.
The suspects were arrested Saturday in Essen, Duesseldorf, Wuppertal, Moenchengladbach, Duisburg, and Ulm. The Associated Press reported that A spokesman said Saturday that the group was suspected of having ties to Islamic State militants, either as sympathizers or a splinter group and of planning a “serious act of violent subversion,” although there was no indication of a specific target. Even though the suspects were released, the investigation would continue.
