Muslim migrant arrested over jihad car bomb plot – Germany

“German police in the western state of Saarland arrested a Syrian migrant who solicited funds from the “Islamic State” militant group in order to carry out a high-casualty terrorist attack, prosecutors said on Monday.

The prosecutor’s office in Saarbrücken said the man asked an “Islamic State” contact for money “so we could purchase vehicles which he could load with explosives and which he wanted to drive into crowds … and blow up in order to kill unknown numbers of people who do not follow the Muslim faith.”

While in custody, he confirmed to police that he contacted the militant group in December, but that he was attempting to defraud them.

“He said he wanted the money from ISIS to support his family back in Syria,” prosecutor Christoph Rebmann told Reuters news agency, referring to the group by an alternative acronym.”
