A 14-year-old citizen of Montenegro planned a terrorist attack on Jakominiplatz in the Austrian city of Graz, writes the Kleine Zeitung. After searching her house, the police found a knife and an ax and Islamic State propaganda material.

The 14-year-old pleaded not guilty and refused to make a statement to the police. The prosecutor's office in Graz ordered her arrest and detention in Jakomini prison, so she has already been ordered into pretrial detention due to the danger of committing a crime and concealing evidence.

Investigators from the State Agency for the Protection of Constitutional Order and Combating Extremism (LSE) of Styria found the girl thanks to a tip from a European security agency. During the search of the girl's house, the police found weapons and all-black clothes that the suspect allegedly planned to use during the attack.

Investigators also found several devices for storing data, and on them propaganda material of the Islamic State, as well as numerous videos of battles and executions. Evidence was also found of chat forum activity where the girl was sending photos of weapons she owns to "like-minded people". The plan was for her attack to be directed against "infidels", writes "Die Presse".

Constitutional protection in Austria is resolutely fighting all forms of extremism, Interior Minister Gerhard Karner (ÖVP) said in response to the arrest. "I thank the investigators from the State Agency for the Protection of Constitutional Order and the Fight against Extremism in Styria. With their involvement, an extremist attack was prevented," he said.
