Berlin: Prosecutors have formally charged four men with membership in a terrorist organization after allegations they planned to carry out an al-Qaeda attack in Germany.

Federal prosecutors said on Thursday the group's leader 30-year-old Moroccan national Abdeladim El-Kebir is also accused of undergoing training at a terror camp in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.

They say he recruited and indoctrinated the group's other members, whose last names were not provided in line with German privacy laws.

The 32-year-old German-Moroccan Jamil S was accused of being responsible for helping produce explosives, while 20-year-old German-Iranian national Amid C and 27-year-old German citizen Halil S are alleged to have had mostly logistical tasks.

The men were arrested last year.
