Germans capture Syrian refugee found with explosives

CNN:
A Syrian refugee detained in Germany on suspicion of planning a bomb attack behaved in a way that suggests a link to the ISIS militant group, the Saxony crime office said Monday.

German police discovered 1.5 kg of extremely dangerous explosives in a flat in Chemnitz before detaining 22-year-old Jaber Albakr in Leipzig overnight, ending a manhunt that lasted almost two days, the German general prosecutor said. It added that Albakr had been planning an "attack with Islamist motives" but that a specific target was as yet unknown.

The arrest of a 22-year-ol Syrian ended a manhunt that lasted almost two days.

"His approach and behavior suggest an IS context," said Joerg Michaelis, the president of the Saxony crime office, referring to the Islamic State, or ISIS.

The Syrian man had taken concrete steps earlier this month to plan the attack, the office said, while Michaelis said Albakr was possibly planning to use an explosive vest.

The arrest will also raise questions about the Syrian refugee policy in Germany and in the US.   Germans are already fleeing Merkel's party because of her open border policy.  It is a policy that Hillary Clinton is pushing for the US.
