Germany - Tunisian Couple Arrested After Police Raid ‘Toxic Substances’ Filled Apartment

The migration-related news keeps coming as a daily dose of bad news for Chancellor Angela Merkel after police raided the Cologne apartment of a 29-year-old Tunisian man and his wife and found a multitude of ‘toxic substances’ which many in the German press today understand as bomb-making materials even though police refused to give any further details. They did, however, importantly, refuse to rule out terrorism.

Police spokesperson Mr. Andre Fassbender declared that "we decided to act very quickly to ward off possible dangers."

The elite SEK police commandos called in a specialized chemical unit from the police and fire department to the 18-story apartment block in Cologne's northern Chorweiler district. The street was cordoned off whilst a mobile laboratory was set up in the entrance area of the apartment.

Related coverage:

German public broadcaster WDR claimed that Cologne’s attorney general had admitted the person arrested may have planned an attack with the substances.

The news comes at a particularly damning time for Ms. Merkel as she is caught in an open discussion within her own conservative CDU party with her new Interior Minister Mr. Ernst Seehofer who urges her to be much tougher on asylum policy.
