Muslim asylum seeker suspected of plotting terror attack arrested by German police

German police on Tuesday arrested a Syrian man suspected of preparing a terror attack using powerful explosives, prosecutors said, 11 months after a deadly jihadist truck rampage at a Berlin Christmas Market.

The man, identified only as Yamen A., 19, was held at dawn by special forces in the northeastern town of Schwerin, the federal prosecutors office said in a statement.

Several apartments were also searched in the region, which is north of Berlin.
