German police have foiled what they say may have been a plot to launch a terrorist attack. Two suspected Muslim terrorists were arrested when German commandoes stormed a Dutch KLM airliner about to leave Cologne for Amsterdam. Police spokesman Franck Scheulen said the suspects had been under surveillance, and suicide notes had been found at their home.
“The first one is 23 years old and has Somali nationality,” said Scheulen. “The second is 24. He is German and was born in Mogadishu. It is thought that both wanted to fight for the Jihad and that they wanted to attack an unknown target. We also found suicide letters.”
