All the suspects are male, and between 16 to 20 years in age. The suspects are ordered held in jail while the police investigate the allegations. Officials didn’t go into much detail, but did say this: “It seems the plan was going into a closing phase.” The suspects were not identified to the public.

Police say they raided the suspects homes in the Copenhagen area, seizing computers, CD’s, cell phones, and books with radical Muslim literature. Some 25 people were briefly detained, but only these 4 suspects were ultimately arrested.
