Danish prosecutors have charged two terror suspects with preparing explosives for an attack in Denmark or abroad.

Investigators say the two suspects had acquired and tested explosives and were preparing bombs for a terror attack.

They were arrested in Copenhagen on Sept. 4. At the time, police said the suspects were militant Islamists with connections to Al Qaeda.

A third person has been charged for allegedly urging the kidnapping of Danish citizens abroad as a way to force Danish authorities to release the other suspects.
