Two German-Moroccan brothers suspected of being members of the Islamic State (IS) were arrested in the region of Bonn on Tuesday, Germany’s Federal Procuratorate said.

The two men, 24 and 25 years old respectively, were arrested by the police of State North Rhine-Westphalia, based on the arrest warrant issued by investigating judge of the Federal Court on Dec. 22, 2016.

The dwellings of both of the arrested have been searched, Federal Procuratorate said.

The man named Rachid B. had traveled in February 2013 via Egypt and Turkey to Syria, where he has joined the IS and received military training since then, according to the Federal Procuratorate.

The younger brother Khalid B also allegedly joined the IS in the beginning of 2013 and received basic military training in Syria. Enditem
