(Schwerin) German Police this morning arrested a 19-year-old Syrian suspected of planning an Islamist-motivated bomb attack in Germany with the aim of killing as many people as possible
The man, named as Yamen A., was arrested in the early hours in the north-eastern town of Schwerin. 

The prosecutor’s office has issued a statement regards the arrest:
“According to the findings so far, Yamen A. made the decision no later than July 2017 to detonate an explosive device in Germany in order to kill and injure as many people as possible,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement. As a result, he began to procure components and chemicals needed to make an explosive device. Whether the suspect had already envisaged a specific target for his bomb attack is still unclear”
