UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Authorities are holding and checking with 10 people on suspicion of planning an attack using a car and guns to kill as many people as possible, German prosecutors said in Frankfurt on Friday.
A spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office said a number of suspects aged between 20 and 42 were German citizens but did not mention any other nationalities.
“They are believed to have agreed to carry out a terrorist Islamic attack using a vehicle and rifles to kill as many of the infidels as possible,” a statement from the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office said.
Prosecutors said the main suspects were a 21-year-old young man from the town of Offenbach near Frankfurt and two brothers from Wiesbaden, noting that they all belonged to a group of Salafis in the region.
