Czech authorities said Thursday they had detained two Iraqi terror suspects, a man and a woman, wanted by Austria over their role in 2018 attacks on trains in Germany.

The arrest came on the heels of Monday’s detention of a 42-year-old Iraqi in Vienna, also suspected in the case.

“Based on a European warrant issued by… Vienna… Czech police detained two foreigners shortly after their arrival at Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague,” Czech police said in a tweet. They said the two were placed in a police cell and that a court would decide on their extradition to Austria.

Marketa Puci, spokeswoman for the Municipal Court in Prague, said the court had received a custody request from prosecutors, on which it has to decide within 24 hours. “The request concerns two Iraqi citizens, a man and a woman,” Puci told AFP. Also on Thursday, Austrian Interior Minister Herbert Kickl said in parliament that the two suspects “formed a cell together with the Iraqi”.

The detained are suspected of having strung a steel rope across the tracks between the southern German cities of Munich and Nuremberg, damaging the front window of a train in October last year.
