Accused of failed attacks on German high-speed train arrested

A former military out of Iraq in Vienna held on suspicion of membership of a group of terrorists that high-speed trains would have coined. Two aanslagpogingen failed last year.

The arrest of the man stemmed from an investigation of recent attempts to make a railway of the high speed train ICE in Germany to sabotage with the help of steel cables or concrete blocks.

The defendant is, according to Austrian media, a recognised refugee who has been twenty years in Vienna live. He would sympathize with Islamic State (IS).

The German and Austrian police were able to track him down thanks to a paper-delivered message IS. That was in October near the site of the first attempt at an attack is found, in Allersberg, between Nuremberg and Munich. In the message, was threatened with attacks on high-speed trains in Europe.
