Internal Border Guard officers detained the four men on Saturday as the attempted to re-enter Poland, based on intelligence provided by Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ABW).

Stanislaw Zaryn, a spokesman for the government, told reporters from the press agency Reuters that the men were “trying to recruit people who could be used to commit some kind of terrorist crimes”.

“They were inspired by ISIS (Islamic State) … but they were not a part of the organisation,” Zaryn added.
