Police have foiled an ISIS-inspired knife attack on Sunday’s half-marathon in Berlin.

Special police forces detained four men in connection with the sporting event that was attended by 36,000, German daily Die Welt reports.

They said the main suspect was planning to kill participants and spectators with knives.

According to Die Welt, the main suspect knew Anis Amri, the Tunisian attacker who targeted a Christmas market in 2016.

Amri killed 12 people when he hijacked a lorry and drove it into the crowded market in Berlin on December 19, 2016.

The paper reported that the suspect, who was not identified, had prepared extra-sharpened knives to use in the attack.

The suspect had in his possession two knives which had been especially sharpened for this purpose, the report said.

Amri’s attack in Berlin in 2016 had prompted German lawmakers to call for tougher security measures.

No major Islamist militant attack has been carried out in Germany since.

Last month, Italian police arrested five people connected to 24-year-old Amri.

Police said one of the five was believed to have procured the fake Italian identity papers that allowed Amri, a failed asylum-seeker, to move around Europe.

Earlier on Sunday, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the government would do everything possible to protect citizens.

He added: ‘We have again experienced that … absolute security is unfortunately not possible.’

The main suspect knew Anis Amri (pictured), the Tunisian attacker who targeted a Christmas market in 2016

Seehofer was speaking in Munster, where a man drove a camper van into a group of people sitting outside a restaurant on Saturday, killing two of them before shooting himself dead.

Authorities have said the attacker was a 48-year-old German citizen with mental health problems and that there was no indication of an Islamist militant connection.

A top German security official said there was no indication of an Islamist motive but officials were investigating all possibilities.

Witnesses said people ran away screaming from the city square after the crash at 3.27pm on Saturday.

Local media reports claim the 48-year-old man – named locally as Jens R. – had been in contact with far-right groups.He was a Munster resident and apparently well-of.f

He was well-known to police and had a history of run-ins with the law, German prosecutors said, adding that they believe he acted alone.

The city’s police president, Hajo Kuhlisch, said the man’s four apartments – two in Munster and two in Saxony – and several cars had been searched thoroughly, but officers were still investigating the evidence and it was too early to speculate about a motive.
