Six Syrian men arrested across Germany on suspicion of Isil 'Christmas market' plotSix Syrian men were arrested in raids across Germany on Tuesday morning on suspicion of planning a terror attack on behalf of Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil). According to unconfirmed reports, the target of the planned attack was a traditional Christmas market which opens in the western city of Essen next week.

Officials have yet to comment on the target of the planned attack.
