Plot to bomb Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate is foiled after “Refugee” ISIS supporter arrested

Authorities in Germany say a bogus Syrian asylum seeker arrested in March this year was plotting a bomb attack at the Brandenburg Gate – the biggest tourist draw in the capital Berlin.

He had marked down the number of tourist buses at several places to maximise death and injury to innocents, said prosecutors.

The 19-year-old Isis supporter was also allegedly considering bombing the nearby Reichstag, the seat of German government, and the Alexanderplatz shopping precinct in East Berlin.
