Syrian Feared to Be Planning Bombing Is Arrested in Germany

BERLIN — The German police captured a Syrian man early Monday who is suspected of plotting a bombing, bringing an end to a weekend manhunt and renewing fears of a threat posed by extremists among the nearly one million refugees and migrants who arrived in Germany last year.

The police in the eastern state of Saxony said they had arrested the suspect, identified as Jaber al-Bakr, 22, in Leipzig, roughly an hour north of Chemnitz, where he had been living.
