MOSCOW, January 16 (Sputnik) — Two people were arrested in Berlin after over 200 German police officers raided a number of properties linked to radical Islamists, according to Deutsche Welle.

One of the arrested, a 41-year old man of Turkish descent who was identified only as Ismet D. due to German privacy laws, was suspected of "leading an Islamist extremist group made up of Turkish and Russia nationals from (the Caucasus regions of) Chechnya and Dagestan," according to a statement issued by the police. The second person, Emin F., 43, was accused of managing the group’s finances, Deutsche Welle adds.
