Attack Plans in Germany: Refugees Celebrate Capture of Terror Suspect

Published on Spiegel Online International, Oct 11, 2016.

Syrian refugees on Sunday night captured a man suspected of planning a terror attack in Germany, tied him up and turned him over to police. As information about his plans continues to emerge, Syrians in Germany are celebrating the man’s capture … //

… The arrest of the Syrian terror suspect came following an unsuccessful attempt by police to apprehend al-Bakr in Chemnitz on Saturday. After finding 1.5 kilograms of “extremely dangerous explosives” in his apartment, as well as “further materials that could be used to produce a suicide vest,” according to federal prosecutors, a weekend-long manhunt ensued.

He immediately informed some friends who came over to the apartment. Together they tied up al-Bakr with a phone cable. According to Mohammad A. al-Bakr sought to buy them off with about 1,200 euros worth of currency he had in his backpack. “But we told him: ‘You can give us as much money as you want, but we’re not letting you go,’” Mohammad A. told RTL.

After an initial call to police failed because of communication difficulties, Mohammad A. took a picture of al-Bakr, tied up on his sofa, and drove to the police station. “I am so thankful to Germany for taking us in,” Mohammad A. told the tabloid Bild. “I couldn’t allow him to do anything to the Germans.”

Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed her gratitude to the Syrians who captured al-Bakr. Saxony Governor Stanislaw Tillich likewise praised them for being “courageous and responsible” … //
