Denmark arrests 4 suspected of joining Islamic State

Danish police say they have arrested four people in greater Copenhagen who are suspected of having “enlisted” in the Islamic State group with the intention to commit terror.

In a statement, police said all four suspects were arrested Thursday in Copenhagen.

They declined to immediately disclose further details.

Police said the four suspects have been identified through “a close cooperation” between Denmark’s intelligence agency and the police in the Danish capital.

The four will face a pre-trial detention hearing Friday.
