Austrian special forces arrest 10 suspected jihadis in dawn raids across the country | The Sun

AUSTRIAN special forces have arrested 10 suspects after anti-terror dawn raids targeted 12 houses in Vienna and Graz.

About 800 cops stormed homes in the two cities as they targeted people suspected of establishing a jihadist network in Austria, local media have reported.

Police spokesman Fritz Grundnig said: “The operations are still ongoing but I can confirm that a number of suspects have been detained.”

The raids are believed to be linked to Ebu Tejma, a Muslim preacher from Bosnia and Herzegovina who was jailed for 20 years last July for recruiting young fighters to ISIS.
