German authorities said six people have been detained Sunday allegedly in connection with a plan to carry out an extremist attack on Berlin's half-marathon.

In a joint statement, prosecutors and police said, “There were isolated indications that those arrested, aged between 18 and 21 years, were participating in the preparation of a crime in connection with this event.”

Berlin police tweeted that six people were arrested after a joint operation with the Berlin's prosecutor's office.

The German daily Die Welt first reported that police was able to stop a plan to attack race spectators and participants with knives.

The paper also reported the main suspect apparently knew Anis Amri, a Tunisian asylum seeker who killed 12 people when he hijacked a truck and drove it into a crowded Berlin Christmas market in December 2016.

The arrests came after Germany special force police raided the homes of suspected members of a far-right group in Berlin, Germany's federal prosecutor's office said.

Authorities did not say if the two cases were connected.

At least eight people are allegedly involved. The chief federal prosecutor's office said apartments in the states of Berlin, Brandenburg and Thuringia were searched on Sunday for weapons.
