German police detained six Syrians suspected of planning an attack using weapons or explosives on behalf of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group, prosecutors said.
Police detained the suspects aged between 20 and 28 during raids in the cities of Kassel, Hanover, Essen and Leipzig, the general prosecutor's office in Frankfurt said in a statement.
Some 500 police officers took part in the raids, during which eight apartments were searched.
Four of the suspects arrived in Germany in December 2014 and two arrived the following year. All six had applied for asylum.
The prosecutor's office did not say if their asylum applications had been approved.
Prosecutors said the six Syrians "are suspected of being members of the foreign terrorist organisation that calls itself Islamic State (IS)", using an alternative acronym for ISIS.
It is the second time this month that Syrians have been arrested on suspicion of planning militant violence, there target may have been the Essen x-mas market..
Earlier this month, a 19-year-old Syrian man was detained on suspicion of planning a bomb attack.
The arrest comes one month before the first anniversary of an attack in Berlin by a failed Tunisian asylum seeker who killed 12 people by ploughing a truck into a Christmas market.
Concrete blocks have been installed around Christmas markets at several central squares in the capital this year before the festive season opens in a couple of weeks..

A Rotterdam citizen named Jaouad A. (31) was convicted to 4 years in prison, the court initially asked for an 8 year sentence.
He was charged with terrorism activities and preparing for a terrorist attack.
The guy was allready under surveillance from the AIVD.
The secret service alarmed police when they listened to his phone messages.
He talked with 2 others about attacking targets in The Netherlands.                                                 
In his house a swat team found an automatic weapon, ammo and a stash of illegal fireworks with enough powder to make a bomb.
The man was a supporter for Daesh.

This time the underground was the target (again) at Parsons Green Station near Fullham.
An explosion hit one of the metros wagons causing injuries for 22 people, all of them suffered from burns in the face.
None of them is badly wounded.
The explosion was caused by a substance in a bucket. An investigation is launched to determine what was in it.
The device exploded partially, this meant the casualty rate could have been higher.
Police found another suspicious package outside the station.
All metro traffic between Earl's Courte and Wimbledon has been suspended for the moment.

Nobody has jet claimed the attack.
Policespokesman said a suspect is known to the police.

Two officers were injured after tackling a man who drove a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police vehicle near Buckingham Palace on Friday night.
Uniformed officers then confronted the driver of the vehicle and during that confrontation the driver reached for a four-foot sword that was in the passenger footwell.
The officers used cs gas and were able to get control over the situation after a brief struggle.
Scotland Yard said the incident is being treated as terrorism.
A spokesman of the Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism branch, said: "We believe the man was acting alone and we are not looking for other suspects at this stage.
"It is only right that we investigate this as a terrorist incident at this time.

A man has been shot dead after attacking soldiers with a machete in Brussels, in what prosecutors are treating as a terror attack.
The Somali attacker, aged 30, died in hospital.
One of the soldiers suffered a hand injury.
Soldiers have become a familiar sight on the streets of the Belgian capital since terror attacks which killed more than 30 people last year.
The attack took place on Boulevard Emile Jacqmain in the centre of the city.
The street was cordoned off with police and troops in the area.
Belgium's federal prosecutor's office said the attacker had not been "known for terrorist activities" but had shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest" in Arabic) during the assault.

Alcanar,

A heavy explosion destroyed a house in that town.
3 men were in the house.
2 of them died in the blast the other is taken into custody by the police, one of the man who died is according to the police an Imam from Ripoll.
A spokesman said they were suspected of making bombs.
All three incidents are related according to that spokesman.
Police now speaks of 11 suspects in total.
They all came from Ripoll 100 km from Barcelona.
The original plan was to fill 3 vans with gascontainers and to blow them up.
Their main target was supposed to be the famous Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona.
The explosion in the house changed this and so they decided to use the vans as murderweapons.
The Morroccan who drove into people at Ramblas was shot dead by police today.
In total the police killed 9 and arrested the other 3 of this 12 man cel.

Another attack in Germany, this time in Hamburg.
Scene of the attack was an Edeka supermarket in the Barmbek area.
A man carrying a machette suddenly went inside the supermarket and attacked customers inside.
He injured 6 and killed 1 person.
After the attack he ran away but was followed and quickley disarmed and overpowered by witnesses, these people also alerted police.
The purp was photographed with a bloody hood over his head.
Other eyewitnesses reported the man shouted Allah Akbar.
By now its shown that the man, a 26 year old "refugee or asylum seeker" from The United Arab Emirates.
The meir of Hamburg said religious grounds could be a motive....after all he shouted Allah AKbar.
But...how supprisingly the had purp had mental issues.
And so again another terrorist attack is swept under the matras.

Belgium, Anderlecht.

In Anderlecht police discovered a terrorist cel.
2 people were arrested (Akim S. 1977) and (Khalid S. 1979), a large stockpile of weapons was found in a garage.
In total police found 3 Ak's, 15 magazines, 3 pistols, a riotgun,2 radios, 2 Bodyarmor vests, 4 detonators, 2 police uniforms, a security officers uniform and a blue light to be used on police cars.
An unknown number of suspects is on the run.
Throughout the country police and army are hunting for them.
There are fears that the suspects may attack other targets of opportunity because their initial plan has now failed.
Same like the attacks in Zaventem and the Brussels metro line last year.

Another attack in Belgium.
This time the central station in Brussels was the target.
A man tried to detonate a heavy bomb filled with nails, at that moment 4 trains just arrived at the station.
The device failed only the detonator exploded causing a big spark.
Needless to say this failure saved many peoples lives.
When his bomb failed he turned to a soldier arriving at the scene jelling "Allah Akbar", the soldier did not hesitate and shot the attacker.
Unconfirmed reports states the attacker was hit 4 times after which he died of the injuries.
Shortley after the incident the Belgium army EOD disarmed the bomb.
The man was a 36 year old Morroccan with initials Oussama Zariouh from Molenbeek.
He was not on the radar regarding terrorism with the authorities, but he was a known criminal.
The station was closed for a while during the investigations but has reopened, security at train and metro stations has become tougher.
Belgiums prime minister Michel praised the soldiers and the  people from the railways for their actions.
