Denmark arrests four suspected IS fighters returned from Syria

COPENHAGEN - Danish police said on Thursday they had arrested four people near Copenhagen who they suspect were recruited by the militant group Islamic State (IS) in Syria to commit violence.
Ammunitions and weapons were found in a connected search, the police later tweeted.
"The arrests took place as part of efforts to combat people enlisting in terrorist groups in the war-torn areas in Syria and northern Iraq," the police said in a statement on Thursday.
The police would not provide more details on the identity of suspicions about the four, who will come before a judge for a preliminary hearing on Friday.
