Authorities in Germany are monitoring almost 500 Islamic extremists they believe pose a potential security threat, officials said Friday, a day after the arrest of three men suspected of planning to carry out an attack in the country for the ISIS group.The men -- identified only as Syrian citizens Hamza C., 27; Mahood B., 25; and Abd Arahman A. K., 31 -- were arrested in three separate locations across Germany following a tip from a fourth suspect who had approached French authorities earlier this year.Dimroth said authorities had received regular tips about possible Islamic extremists coming to Germany as asylum-seekers and were systematically checking those reports.Overall in Germany, Justice Ministry spokesman Philip Scholz said federal prosecutors are currently conducting nearly 120 investigations involving over 180 suspects in connection with terrorism offences.
