Denmark arrest 2 men for planning to join IS in Syria

Danish prosecutors say two men have been arrested suspected of having violated Denmark's terror laws for planning to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group.

In a statement, the prosecution office for suburban Copenhagen says the two are aged 18 and 19. They were not identified.

The men will face a pre-trial custody hearing later Wednesday. No further details were immediately available.

Defense lawyer Michael Juul Eriksen said he had been asked to represent one of the two but had no details about the case.
