Austrian, German Police Arrest Foreign Muslims Planning Terror Attacks On Christmas Targets: Report

By  Ryan Saavedra

Law enforcement officials in Germany and Austria arrested multiple suspected Islamic terrorists this week who were allegedly planning terrorist attacks on Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

The report from the German publication Bild said that several suspects were arrested in the Ottakring district of Vienna and that another was arrested in Saarland, Germany.

The report said that the suspected terrorists were Tajiks who were connected to the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, also known as ISIS-K.

Police in Vienna said that there was an “increased terror alert level” as Islamic terrorists “across Europe are calling for attacks on Christian events – especially around December 24th.”

“The security authorities have increased the corresponding protective measures in public spaces in Vienna and the federal states,” the police added, noting that they would be increasing their presence and at religious events to deter any attacks.
