Two Danish brothers originally from Somalia have been arrested on suspicion of plotting a terror attack, Denmark’s security service said Tuesday.
The men, aged 18 and 23, were suspected of “being in the process of preparing an act of terror” after being overheard talking about methods, targets and different weapon types, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service said.
The agency, known by its Danish acronym PET, said the brothers were arrested late Monday — one in the western city of Aarhus and the other as he arrived by plane at Copenhagen’s international airport.
