>> Arrested at a refugee center, three Syrian men picked up by police in North Germany following a raid on their temporary home. Germany's Interior Minister says they're suspected of having links with Islamic State. Dispatched there in November last year either to carry out a mission or to wait for further instructions.

The three men, aged 17 to 26, could part of the same network that carried out the attacks in Paris last November. It's thought the trio arrived at the height of the migrant crisis, travelling through Turkey and Greece to get to Germany. The militant group allegedly provided them with passports, more than $1000 in cash and cellphones with a special communications program.

Word of these arrests wont help Chancellor Angela Merkel's open door policy to refugees. Concern about their presence is growing after a series of violent attacks. Three of which were carried out by asylum seekers, and two claimed by Islamic State. The arrival of around a million migrants last year has left the country on edge.
