Berlin Islamists targeting Russia?

Berlin Islamists targeting Russia?

Radical Islamists living in Berlin might have been preparing a series of terror acts in Russia, Itar-Tass reports quoting German police sources.

Some of the planned attacks were supposed to involve suicide bombers.

German authorities released information after the wrap-up of a large-scale anti-terror operation.

They managed to track the Islamist group after receiving information from Russia and international anti-terror bodies.

Around 150 policemen searched 26 houses and apartments of suspected terrorists.

According to preliminary findings, the group, headed by a well-known Islamist of Arab origin, was made up of 15 people.

Police say some of the group members traveled to Pakistan and secretly trained in Al-Qaeda camps.

After questioning, all Islamists have been set free.
