The Moroccan migrant suspect at the centre of a foiled plot to launch an attack outside the Russian embassy in Berlin, Germany, was arrested “at the last minute”, just hours before the terror attack was due to take place.
The migrant had come to the attention of the security services after discussing his plans on social media under a number of pseudonyms.
New details of the attack have come to light in the German press. As reported by Die Welt, the Moroccan male identified as Mohammed B.H. had told others he intended to infiltrate a protest that would take place outside the Russian embassy during the second weekend of April, and then launch his attack from there.
Die Welt reported that a special police task force acted on intelligence gathered on the suspect, raiding the migrant ‘container village’ of 8,000 residents where Mohammed lived at five o’clock on the morning of the day he planned to launch his attack. The Moroccan male attempted to escape, but he was arrested and has now been charged.
