MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Two men, Kosovo-born brothers aged 28 and 31, were detained in the early hours of Friday, Der Spiegel said. According to the news magazine, police believe they were planning an attack on a shopping center in Oberhausen.
Police are now investigating whether other people could be involved in the suspected plot.
On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring over 40 others. The country's Interior Ministry considers the incident a terrorist attack.
A nationwide manhunt continues for Anis Amri, a 24-year-old asylum seeker from Tunisia, whose residence permit was found in the hijacked Polish truck. Police also found his fingerprints on the door of the truck.
