One arrested as German police raid Islamists in Berlin

More than 200 German police officers raided suspected Islamist sites in and around Berlin early Friday, arresting an alleged leader of a group planning to carry out an attack in Syria, police said.


The arrested man, who was identified as Ismet D., is a 41-year-old man of Turkish origin and is suspected of "leading an Islamist extremist group made up of Turkish and Russian nationals from (the Caucasus regions' of) Chechnya and Dagestan," the police said in a statement, adding that "there is no indication that the group was preparing attacks inside Germany."
