‘ISIS terror cell in Europe is foiled’: Two suspects are held in the Czech Republic days after an Iraqi was arrested in Austria for ‘trying to derail German trains’

A suspected ISIS terror cell in Europe has been snared after two Iraqis wanted in connection for attacks on German trains were detained.

Czech authorities arrested a father-of-five and a woman at Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague today after Austria issued a European Arrest Warrant for the pair.

They are suspected of having fastened a steel cable across the tracks which run between Munich and Nuremberg which damaged the front window of a train in October last year.

Reinforced wooden wedges had also been placed on the track in the hope of derailing one of the trains.
