A 17-year-old Syrian has been arrested in Germany on suspicion of plotting a suicide attack in Berlin, the BBC reports.
The suspect was arrested in Uckermark, which is approximately 100km north of Berlin and in the state of Brandenburg.
Karl-Heinz Shröter, the state’s interior minister, announced the arrest on Tuesday.
Shröter said that the suspect had clearly written about a planned attack in an electronic message to his mother, according to local news agency DW.
The specifics of the alleged plot have not yet been revealed.
It comes just a week after the suicide bombing at Manchester Arena by Salman Abedi. The terror attack killed 22 and left 116 needing hospital treatment.
