Danish-Somali Brothers Arrested in Terror Plot

Two Danish brothers of Somali origin, with alleged connections to Somali militant group al-Shabab, were arrested in Denmark on suspicion of plotting a terror attack.

Danish police said the arrests thwarted plans to commit "a concrete act of terror."

"The arrested are suspected of having been in the process of preparing an act of terror, among other things through conversations about methods, targets and the use of weapon types," a police statement said.
