Eight Arrested in Austria in Anti-Terror Raids; Islam Preacher Convinced Teens to Fight for IS

Austrian police have taken eight people into custody on suspicion of belonging to a terrorist organization, the Euro News website reports today (February 1, 2017).

The raids were part of an ongoing investigation into possible members of the Islamic State (IS).

Austrian media reported it was a bid to break up a network of a Muslim preacher from Bosnia suspected of brainwashing teenagers into fighting for the jihadist group.

Around 800 police officers were involved in the counter-terrorism raids, which involved searching mosques and apartments in Graz and Vienna.
