The two-day hunt for terrorists in Germany ended this morning. The police in Leipzig detained a Syrian suspect in the planning of the explosion.
Police on Saturday said they found a highly explosive mixture of substances is more dangerous than TNT in the RAID on an apartment in Chemnitz. They said that the mixture can cause significant damage in small quantities. Police arrested 22-year-old Jaber of Albatera on Saturday during a RAID on an apartment.
"Tired, but overjoyed: we captured a suspect last night in Leipzig," police announced on Twitter on Monday. Police reported that the substance cannot easily be transported, so they dug a few holes, which blasted dangerous substance.
The police said that Albacker was born on 10 January 1994 in a rural area in Damascus. Reuters quoted the police, saying that this man was granted refugee status in the country last year.
Two other suspects were arrested in the city train station on Saturday, police said. The station was temporarily cordoned off, police said. Another suspect was arrested in the city centre. Police reported that the man was in contact with Albuterol.
The tip about the apartment came from the German domestic intelligence services, he said. Police conducted a controlled explosion to gain access to the apartment. Chemnitz is located about 40 kilometers from the city of Dresden, where security stepped up last month after two explosions, one near a mosque and another near the Convention center. Two makeshift devices were found at the scene of the attack, police said. No one was hurt.
