A Syrian refugee, suspected in attempting a terrorist attack in Berlin airport, committed suicide. Jaber al Bakr made that in an individual cell in Leipzig, where he was kept in detention for the period of investigation.

The media report that he announced a hunger strike before his death, so he was under full-time surveillance. Thus it is yet unknown how he managed to commit suicide.

A twenty-two year old Syrian was detained in Leipzig on Monday.

The pplice had searched his apartment in Saxony two days before that, finding a homemade device stuffed with powerful explosive. The explosive substance was of the same kind with those used in the terror attacks in Paris and Brussels.
