German prosecutors announced on Tuesday that three men were arrested on suspicion of distributing propaganda on the Internet supporting al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations.
The arrests came amid a dozen raids on buildings across Germany.
Prosecutors said in a statement that a total of eight people were being treated as suspects and they had arrested three German citizens - identified only as Daniel P., 26, Harun Can A., 23, and Irfan P., 19.
