Terror Suspect Kills Self in Cell

2016-10-13 12:37:441 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

A Syrian suspected of plotting a bomb attack in Germany committed suicide in his jail cell on Wednesday night, officials said. Jaber Albakr, 22, hanged himself using his T-shirt despite checks occurring at least every 30 minutes at the detention center in Leipzig. He was arrested Monday following a nationwide manhunt. When Albakr arrived at the prison on Monday, authorities did not identify an "acute suicide danger," Justice Minster Sebastian Gemkow said. Intelligence officials said police had found more than two pounds of explosives in an apartment where they had aimed to arrest Albakr last week before he managed to escape.

After a two-day manhunt, Albakr was tied up by fellow Syrian refugees who had taken him up for the night before learning he had been wanted on suspicion of planning a terror attack in Germany.
Intelligence officials believe that Albakr may have had ties to ISIS. Security was stepped up at Berlin's Schoeneberg airport during the manhunt — which was believed to be a potential target.
