Weapons seized in terror swoop

German police recovered a pipe bomb, an assault rifle and chemicals that can be used to make explosives after two suspects were detained in an overnight anti-terror raid near Frankfurt, prosecutors said yesterday.

A state interior minister said the arrests foiled a possible terrorist attack and the two suspects were linked to Islamic extremists.

The raid in Oberursel came after security officials learned three litres of hydrogen peroxide had been purchased at a store by someone using a false name, authorities said.
