The Copenhagen Police and the Danish intelligence agency PET have arrested two people in Denmark under suspicion they have tried to take part in terrorism abroad.

A 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested yesterday following a long investigation.

“The case involves the purchase and transportation of items from Denmark to IS in Syria/Iraq that were to be implemented in battle actions,” the Copenhagen Police wrote in a press release.

The two arrested were reported as being of an ethnic background other than Danish, and they will appear in court this morning – a hearing the prosecution has asked to be held behind closed doors.

The police were out in force in Brøndby yesterday, which a number of media have speculated could have something to do with the case.

According to TV2 News, a number of computers, cameras and professional drone equipment were found during the raids.
