June 18, 2009 21:51

Four men accused of belonging to a radical Islamic terror cell that plotted to attack US targets in Germany have begun confessing to some of the charges against them, lawyers said Thursday. The suspects were being questioned by members of Germany's domestic intelligence service, their lawyers confirmed. Fritz Gelowicz and Adem Yilmaz, both 29, and co-defendants Daniel Martin Schneider, 22, and Attila Selek, 23, are being questioned separately. The four are suspected of operating as a German cell of the radical Islamic Jihad Union - a group the US State Department says was responsible for coordinated bombings outside the US and Israeli embassies in Uzbekistan in July 2004.
