Ger­many on alert as po­lice hunt for bomb plot sus­pect

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Ger­man po­lice were last night search­ing for a man sus­pected of plan­ning a bomb at­tack af­ter a raid on his apart­ment in the east­ern city of Chem­nitz turned up noth­ing, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. Po­lice raided the prop­erty af­ter re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion from Ger­many’s do­mes­tic in­tel­li­gence agency on Fri­day night about the al­leged at­tack plans, Sax­ony po­lice spokesman Tom Bern­hardt said. Neigh­bours re­ported hear­ing an ex­plo­sion, but that was the po­lice as­sault team blow­ing open the apart­ment’s door, po­lice spokes­woman Kathlen Zink said. She said po­lice found no­body in the apart­ment, that that they are now search­ing for the sus­pect. She re­fused to pro­vide de­tails about the sus­pect. “The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing,” she said. Ger­many has been on edge since two at­tacks this sum­mer claimed by ISIS in which mul­ti­ple peo­ple were in­jured and both as­sailants died. Two other at­tacks, in­clud­ing a deadly mall shoot­ing in Mu­nich, have also con­trib­uted to fears.
