Police and special forces raided four flats and two offices in Berlin and properties in the northern regions of North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony.
“Specifically [the raids] concern possible plans for an attack in Germany, even more specifically in Berlin,” Martin Steltner, a spokesman for Berlin prosecutors, said.
Berlin police spokesman Stefan Redlich said the authorities were investigating four Algerian men. Police detained two men and a woman.
“Our understanding is that the four men accused could have planned to carry out such an attack together,” Mr Steltner said.
German media reported that central Berlin landmarks and tourist attractions Checkpoint Charlie and Alexanderplatz were targets.
