Two men was arrested near Frankfurt by German police on suspicion of links with plotting car bomb attacks in Germany last year, said German prosecutors Friday.
The two men are Omid S, 27, an Afghan-born German national, and Huseyin O, also 27, a Turkish national. A statement said they were associates of Adem Y, who was arrested last year by police for plotting car bomb attacks in Germany.
The two men were described as associates of the Pakistan-based Islamic Jihad Union (IJU). Both were accused of traveling and carrying supplies to an IJU camp in the Afghan-Pakistan border area last year.
IJU, a group seen as a modern successor to al-Qaida, has been the main focus of the recent German anti-terrorism inquiries.
