German police arrested two Syrian migrants linked to the Syrian terror group al-Nusra Front, which morphed into Fatah al-Sham Front in 2013.

A 35-year-old man identified as Abdalfatah H.A. was arrested Wednesday in Düsseldorf, and a 26-year-old identified as Abdulrahman A.A. was arrested Thursday in Giessen. The former is suspected of killing 36 people prior to arriving in Germany, Deutsche Welle reported Thursday.

A statement released by the federal prosecutor’s office claimed Abdalfatah H.A. carried out war crimes under the guise of “Shariah death sentences,” The Associated Press reported. Spokeswoman Frauke Koehler declined to discuss reports that both men were asylum seekers.

The suspects were scheduled to appear before a judge Thursday.

Munich prosecutors also arrested a 33-year-old Bosnian man in a separate case Tuesday, AP reported. The unidentified individual was taken into custody in Nuremberg and is suspected of delivering vehicles to the terrorist group Junud al-Sham.
