German commandos have arrested two men on an aeroplane preparing to take off from Cologne airport.
A Somali, 23, and a Somali-born German, 24, were suspected of planning attacks and were detained after several months of surveillance, police said.
The men had intended to carry out "holy war" and suicide notes had been found at their flat, a police official told German television.

See source for full story.

Doesn't say if they were caught with anything.

No mention of weapons/box cutters or what their intentions were.

I would think more arrests are imminent if they have been under surveillance for months. I can't see them working alone.

Then again.... the 'shoe bomber' was a bit of mystery.

What was the unit, GSG9 or KSK?
