German authorities arrest ISIS supporters suspected of preparing Swedish parliament attack.

According to a statement released by the Office of the German Federal Prosecutor, two individuals who are suspected of plotting an attack with firearms on the Swedish parliament were taken into custody in Germany on Tuesday. According to the statement, the two individuals, who the authorities have inferred to be citizens of Afghanistan, were taken into custody close to the city of Gera in Thuringia, which is located in the central region of Germany.

One of those who were arrested is suspected to be a member of the terrorist organization ISIS, while another is suspected to be a supporter of the organization, according to a statement released by Germany’s Federal Minister of the Interior, Nancy Faeser, on Tuesday. During an interview with CNN, the Afghanistan Embassy in Berlin stated that it had not received any communication from German federal authorities over the situation, and that it was prepared to comply if it was required to do so.

In addition, the Embassy issued a statement in which it stated, “The Embassy… condemns, in the strongest terms, all ideological and acts of violence and terrorism in all of its forms.” During the summer of 2023, the suspects allegedly got instructions from a branch of ISIS on how to carry out the alleged planned attack, as stated by the Office of the German Federal Prosecutor. According to the prosecution, the act was carried out with the intention of punishing those responsible for the burning of the Quran, which had occurred in Sweden and other Scandinavian nations at the time. Those who were going to be targeted included police officers, according to the report.

According to the statement, the two inmates made “concrete preparations” for the terrorist assault and attempted to acquire weapons, but they were defeated in their efforts. The investigation continued by stating that they also investigated the local conditions in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, which was claimed to be the location of the attack. Additionally, according to the investigators, both individuals had previously gathered money totaling approximately 2,000 Euros, which is equivalent to approximately $2,170, in order to deliver to ISIS. The federal prosecutor in Germany has stated that the suspects would be presented before the Federal Court of Justice of the country on either Tuesday or Wednesday. According to the statement, the court will make decisions regarding the execution of pre-trial detention and the issuance of arrest warrants for the accused.
