No date has been set for the trial
Four young Muslim men are to be tried under new anti-terrorism legislation in Denmark, prosecutors say.

The men allegedly tried to obtain weapons and explosives as part of a plot to attack an unidentified target in Europe.

All four are reportedly long-time Danish residents whose names and nationalities have not been released.

They were arrested last October in connection with an investigation in Bosnia. They deny any wrongdoing.

Danish police arrested the four men after receiving a tip from Bosnian police.

Prosecutor Henning Fode said the four had contact with two men arrested earlier in Bosnia and helped them obtain "weapons and explosives with the aim of committing a terror act."

The four men are aged between 17 and 21 and cannot be named under a court order. A date for their trial has not yet been set.
