 German authorities arrested an Iranian national on Saturday in the town of Castrop-Rauxel, near Dortmund, who was allegedly planning a chemical attack.

The 32-year-old was “suspected of having prepared a serious act of violence threatening the security of the state by obtaining cyanide and ricin with a view to committing an Islamist attack,” said investigators.

The suspect’s brother was also taken into custody during the police operation.
