Germany: Man suspected of planning attack as IS member

BERLIN –  Police in Germany have arrested a 29-year-old German man on suspicion of being a member of the Islamic State group and planning an attack with a vehicle.

Federal prosecutors say a tactical response unit arrested the man, identified only as Dasbar W., on Wednesday in the southwest German city of Karlsruhe.

Prosecutors accuse the man of making contact with IS supporters online in April 2015, before he traveled to Iraq in June of that year. He is alleged to have received firearms training and scouted targets for an attack.
