Iceland arrests 4 men suspected of plotting terror in ‘unprecedented’ operation


Icelandic police say they have arrested four men on charges of “preparing terrorist acts” – an unprecedented situation for the small country.

Gunnar Hörður Garðarsson, Iceland’s National Police Communications Director, said four Icelandic men, all in their 30s, had been arrested “in connection with an investigation into the preparation of acts of terrorism”. .

“Icelandic police have prevented possible acts of terrorism,” he said. “The police do not consider the Icelandic public to be dangerous and the threat level of terrorist acts in Iceland is not higher now because the situation has been secured.”

Garðarsson added: “These operations and investigations are unprecedented in Iceland.

The raid took place Wednesday in the Icelandic capital Reykjavík.

According to Icelandic police, the suspects have been investigated on suspicion of “the purpose of producing and selling firearms”.

Police have seized dozens of firearms, including semi-automatic weapons, according to Karl Steinar Valsson, National Commissioner of Icelandic Police during a news conference on Tuesday.

Valsson also said some of them are 3D printed.
