German interior minister – Arrested Iraqis did explosion tests

The three Iraqi citizens arrested by German police were trying to build a bomb and carried out explosion experiments, Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer told journalists on Wednesday.

German prosecutors earlier said they arrested three Iraqis suspected of planning an Islamist-motivated attack.

Seehofer said it was yet unclear whether the suspects could have links to any terrorist organizations, but said that the fact that they could have tried to build a bomb could be qualified as “danger of terrorism”.
