Terror suspects detained in bomb plot

Berlin authorities said they arrested two men Thursday on suspicion of acquiring chemicals for a possible bombing, ahead of the September 11, 2001 attacks’ anniversary and a papal visit this month. Police took a 24-year-old German of Lebanese origin and a 28-year-old Palestinian from the Gaza Strip into custody and raided their homes, a spokesman told AFP.
He said authorities had launched the investigation, reportedly codenamed “Rainshower”, several months ago but did not provide further details. He also declined to comment on a possible link to the September 11 anniversary or the September 22-25 visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Germany, which will start in Berlin.
