    13 people have been arrested in Denmark over the past few days in connection with a suspected terrorist plot. They are believed to have been preparing attacks either in Denmark or Germany, where one person has also been arrested.

    Danish security authorities provided updates on the alleged terrorist plot during a press conference on Friday.

    Law enforcement officers have seized weapons as well as bomb-making ingredients from the suspects. The police also recovered a flag of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group, suggesting would-be terrorists were driven by hard-line Islamist beliefs.

    A total of 13 people are being held in connection with the plot in Denmark, with another individual believed to be linked to the investigation detained in Germany.

    “These people could be inspired by militant Islamism,” the chief of operations in the Danish intelligence service, Flemming Dreyer, stated. “We have found the ingredients and parts needed to make a bomb.”
