5 Islamic State suspects arrested in Germany
BERLIN - German prosecutors say that authorities have arrested five men on allegations they aided the Islamic State group in Germany, recruiting members and providing financial and logistical help.
The federal prosecutor's office says the men were arrested by officers of the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Prosecutors say the suspects were focused on recruiting young Muslims in Germany, and raising funds to send them to Syria to join IS. They're also accused of providing logistical support for the trips.
Justice Minister Heiko Maas calls the arrests an "important blow to the extremist scene in Germany."
