Three people have been arrested in Austria in connection with an online video threat by Islamic militants against Austria and Germany in March, broadcaster ORF reported Thursday. A spokesman for the Interior Ministry could not immediately be reached for comment. A news conference was slated for later Thursday. In a Web statement that surfaced in March, Islamic militants threatened to attack Germany and Austria unless the two European nations break ranks with the U.S. and withdraw their personnel from Afghanistan.
