German police foil Berlin half-marathon attack plan

The German daily Die Welt is reporting that police have foiled a knife attack on the half-marathon in Berlin. The paper says special police forces detained four men in conn

Deutsche Welle notes that the main suspect in Sunday's planned attack was under observation by police "for some time", so police did not consider him a "concrete threat", although the thwarting of the half-marathon plot appears to have happened at the eleventh hour.

The main suspect allegedly knew Anis Amri, a Tunisian who killed 12 people and injured dozens more when he drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin in December 2016, Die Welt reported. Police were watching one suspect's movements around the clock.

German police have foiled an alleged plot to attack Sunday's half-marathon in Berlin.

On Sunday police said they arrested the man and five co-conspirators and foiled an alleged plot meant to inflict horror. Police have not released the names of the men who have been detained or any information about the charges they face.

This year's half-marathon attracted more than 30,000 participants, according to organizer SCC Events. After an overseas intelligence agency tipped off German police who he was planning to strike the half-marathon, police boarded flats and also two vehicles at the Charlottenburg and also Neukoelln areas of the town.

Some 630 police officers were deployed to guard the race.

Local media reported that the suspect in Sunday's plot planned to use specially sharpened knives in an attack, and that several apartments had been searched in connection to the operation.

The other three suspects also had links to Amri, according to Die Welt.

Berlin Mayor Michael Mueller thanked security forces for preventing an "impending attack with their vigilance and police work". It wrote that in one of the searched apartments, dogs trained to find explosives barked when they were taken into the dwelling's basement. He said that, while the government would do its utmost to protect citizens, "absolute security is unfortunately not possible".
