In Berlin, special police officers arrested a Syrian on Tuesday morning, who was reportedly informed about the construction of bombs and exchanged information on the Internet. "The purpose of the chat traffic should have been the preparation of terrorist attacks," said the Attorney General Berlin.

The Federal Prosecutor's Office in Karlsruhe investigates on suspicion of preparing a serious state-damaging violence against the man. She accuses the 37-year-old, since January 2019 components and chemicals for the construction of an explosive device concerned. In August and September 2019, the man allegedly bought acetone and hydrogen peroxide solution. Both chemicals are needed for the production of the highly explosive triacetontriperoxide. In addition, the suspect's home in Berlin had been searched, said the highest German prosecution.

The Syrian should have been according to ARD information for several months in the sights of the security authorities. The Berlin State Criminal Police Office had finally handed the case over to the Federal Criminal Police Office. The first references to the man were therefore from a foreign intelligence service to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.
