Johannesburg - Two brothers allegedly linked to ISIS (Islamic State) who planned to set off explosives at a US embassy and "Jewish institutions" in South Africa are due back at the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie, both 24, face terrorism-related charges.

Two others who were arrested with them in Newclare and Florida were granted bail at the Kagiso Magistrate's Court on Monday, BDLive reported.

According to the site, Ibrahim and Fatima Patel were each granted R5 000 bail after their lawyer‚ Yousha Tayob‚ brought an urgent application before the High Court in Johannesburg for their release.

The NPA could not be reached by News24 to confirm reports of their release.

All four were arrested by officers during anti-terrorist raids carried out in Newclare‚ Florida and Azaadville last week.

The Patels were arrested and charged with being in possession of unlicensed ammunition and explosives.
