Germany searches home of 2 ISIS-linked Syrians suspected of planning attack

BERLIN - German police have raided the home of two Syrian brothers with links to the militant group Islamic State (IS), suspecting that they were preparing an attack, prosecutors in Frankfurt said on Thursday.
Police confiscated an air pistol, electronic storage devices, mobile phones and 14,000 euros ($16,000) in cash but did not arrest the brothers, 21 and 30 years old.
Prosecutors did not give more information on the exact nature of the suspected crime, which they called a "serious act of violent subversion".
The older brother had entered Germany in February 2015 with a forged passport obtained by IS, a crime for which he was sentenced and fined last year.
