German authorities say they successfully thwarted Islamic State terror attacks on U.S. military bases and an individual who was “critical of Islam.”
Prosecutors said five suspects — one who has been in detention for roughly a year — sought out attacks against “U.S forces in Germany or even individual people,” Reuters reported Wednesday.
A recent terror raid near Essen and Duesseldorf ended the threat and resulted in a series of arrests.
Prosecutors named the following suspects while maintaining Germany’s privacy regulations:
— Azizjon B.
— Muhammadali G.
— Farhodshoh K.
— Sunatullokh K.
— Ravsan B. (in detention before the raid)
The men are also accused of being in contact with leading members of the terror group in Afghanistan and Syria.
“They planned a murder attack on one person who had made public comments that they viewed as being critical of Islam,” prosecutors said, Reuters reported.
