Two people have been arrested in Copenhagen and charged on Thursday with attempting to supply Islamic State with drones, which the organization has used to carry out attacks, police said.

The two were arrested after police and Danish security and intelligence services carried out raids in Copenhagen, the police were quoted by Jerusalem Post as saying in a statement.

The two persons are suspected of being members of a broader network that ships drones and other supplies to Islamic State from Denmark for use in combat, the police said. The police did not release their names or any details about them.

They were charged with attempting to collude with terrorism abroad, the police said in a statement.

Islamic State has increasingly been using drones to carry out attacks in Syria and Iraq.
