The migrant from Syria who tried to get financial support to commit new terrorist attack on the mined truck was detained in western Germany. A Syrian migrant planned to drive truck bombs into a crowd. It was reported by Reuters, referring to a German state prosecutor's office.

The Prosecutor Christoph Rebmann reported that the man was suspected of seeking the money from Islamic State in Syria to buy trucks and load them with 400-500 kg of explosives.

The man admitted his contacts with Islamic State (ISIS) but denied he had any plans to attack.

In the latest case, the prosecutor in the western city of Saarbruecken said the 38-year-old Syrian was detained on Saturday and a formal arrest warrant was issued on Sunday.

Earlier there was an attack when a Tunisian whose asylum request had been rejected rammed a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people.
