Copenhagen Police and the Danish security authority PET have today arrested four people suspected of being enlisted by the jihadist militant group IS to commit terror attacks, reports DR.
According to the police, all of the suspects are accused of violating the Danish penal code on terrorism and could be sentenced to life in prison.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for tomorrow and will take place behind closed doors.
