German terrorism suspect held in Pakistan, over plot to attack German embassy

Looks like he was planning a wedding in Pakistan!

BERLIN: Germany says Pakistan has arrested a German wanted on terrorism charges at home. The Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Pakistani authorities had confirmed they were holding a man from Frankfurt identified as Rami M.

A ministry spokesman did not comment on media reports saying Rami M. was wanted in Germany for membership in a terrorist group, nor on reports he was planning a terrorist attack on Germany’s embassy in Islamabad.

Der Spiegel magazine and Berliner Zeitung daily reported that Rami M. had phoned the embassy, asking for documents to leave Pakistan.

They reported the embassy asked him to come on June 21 but was warned he planned an attack.

The reports said Pakistani authorities arrested him before his embassy appointment. — AP
