German police arrest Muslim linked to Paris jihad attacks: had guns, explosives, hand grenades
A man arrested with firearms in his car by German police is being linked to the Paris terrorist attacks.
The arrest of a 51-year-old man in Bavaria last week could be connected to the explosions and shootings in the French capital.
Public broadcaster Bayrischer Rundfunk said German authorities informed French officials about the arrest of the man near the German-Austrian border on November 5. It did not provide a source for its information.
Bavarian state police spokesman Ludwig Waldinger confirmed that firearms, explosives and hand grenades were found.
Mr Waldinger said: "We are providing no further information at this point."
