From the German edition of the Local and Associated Press

Three alleged supporters of the terror group Isis have been arrested in the western German state of Hesse for reportedly planning a deadly attack in the Rhine-Main region.

Searches and seizures of materials belonging to the suspects took place on Tuesday at three apartments in Offenbach, according to the public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt am Main. The men between the ages of 21 and 24 are alleged to have made preparations for an attack involving explosives or firearms.

According to the public prosecutor's office, a 24-year-old German of North Macedonian (formerly Macedonia) origin is the main suspect. He had procured "basic components for the production of explosives" and searched the Internet for firearms, the authority announced. Two men of Turkish citizenship aged 21 and 22 are also accused. All three men were to be brought before a judge on Tuesday, who would decide on detention awaiting a trial.

According to the investigators, the men wanted to carry out an attack in the Rhine-Main area.

“The intervention occurred in time to prevent a concrete threat,” chief prosecutor Nadja Niesen told reporters in Frankfurt. She said that the suspects appeared to have planned an attack in the Rhine-Main region with the intention of killing “as many people, so-called unbelievers, as possible,” but it wasn’t yet known whether they had chosen a specific target.

It was alleged that they had already made themselves known to other people as Isis-followers. They are accused of preparing for a serious crime that would endanger the state.

The raid involved some 170 officials, including special forces. In addition to data media and written documents, "explosives-relevant substances and equipment" were confiscated from the main suspect, according to the public prosecutor's office.
