A German government minister has today revealed that a fake bomb found on an Air Berlin flight in Namibia was manufactured in the U.S. to test airport security.

It was not yet clear who had planted ‘test suitcase’, said German interior minister Thomas de Maziere, but the one fact they had established was that the device had been manufactured by a U.S. company that specialises in alarm systems.

At no time were passengers’ lives in danger.

Mr de Maziere said: ‘This company is a manufacturer of alarm and detection systems and these real test suitcases are built to test security measures.’

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) confirmed today that it was working with the German and Namibian authorities ‘to determine the origin of the device and the reason it was being transported on the plane’.

The suitcase, which contained batteries connected to a detonator and a ticking clock, was intercepted by authorities at Windhoek airport on Wednesday night and sparked an international terror alert.
