A man was arrested in connection with the November 2 attack in Vienna in which four people were shot dead by a sympathizer of the Islamic State group in the center of the Austrian capital, prosecutors announced on Saturday.

The man, a 21-year-old Austrian of Egyptian origin, was arrested Friday at his parents’ home in the suburbs of Vienna, according to local media. A dozen other suspects arrested after the attack are still in detention but have not yet been charged with charges, prosecutors said.

He wanted to join the ranks of jihadist fighters in Syria

Kujtim Fejzulai had tried in July to obtain ammunition in Slovakia and the secret services of this country neighboring Austria had informed their Austrian counterparts, but this did not lead to concrete action.

The 20-year-old Austrian assailant, whose parents were from North Macedonia, was sentenced to prison in April 2019 for trying to join the ranks of jihadist fighters in Syria. He was released early in December 2019.
