Police investigations took place in the Länder of West Germany, North Rhine Westphalia and Baden Württemberg.
One of ten suspected Islamists is a Tajik citizen, however the authorities have given little publicity to suspects, as stated by the AMP.
BR public broadcaster later mentioned that the ten have been released, however investigations are continuing.
Prosecutors stated the suspects have been arrested due to the fact they planned “a serious crime that would endanger the country.”
The local media stated that the arrested have been supporters of the Islamic State.
