German police raid homes of 4 men linked to Vienna Attack

The homes and businesses of four men linked to the ISIL (ISIS) sympathiser who carried out a deadly attack in Vienna this week have been raided.

German police on Friday said officers, including members of the anti-terrorism unit GSG9, searched premises in Osnabrueck, Kassel and Pinneberg county, on Friday.

Even though the men are not currently suspected of any involvement in Monday’s shooting, there is an evidence they had links to the attacker, the police added.

According to German federal prosecutors two of the men are believed to have met the attacker in Vienna this summer.

The third man had contact with him online, while the fourth had no direct contact with the attacker but was in touch with people who knew him.

The prosecutors said they were trying to collect possible evidence during the search even though nobody was arrested.

Five people including the gunman were killed in the attack and 20 others including a police officer, were injured.

Authorities in Austria said the attacker was a 20-year-old Kujtim Fejzulai, a dual national of Austria and North Macedonia, who had a previous conviction for trying to join ISIL in Syria and had been given early release in December.
