Baku, November 27, AZERTAC

The murder weapons used by Jihadi terrorists for the Paris terror attacks may have come from Germany, it has been revealed, according to Dailymail.

Bild newspaper said on Friday that a weapons handler near Stuttgart identified only as Sascha W is under arrest and this has been confirmed by prosecutors.

The driver Vlatko Vucic, 51, was found with a navigation system with Paris as his destination. He has been under arrest ever since and refuses to say anything.

Police say he is not a Jihadist but the suspicion remains as he was a lowly courier for Balkan arms dealers trading with radicals in the French capital - possibly even the murder gang behind the November 13 massacre.

Bild reported: 'Only two days ago police realized the true dimension of the illegal arms trade specialist when evaluating his phone.

'Four emails on his smartphone proved the sale of four Kalashnikov assault rifles to an Arab in Paris!'

Media reports said the police swoop was based on 'concrete fears' of a planned attack in the western city of Dortmund.

It is alleged the worshippers at the Seituna Mosque in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin were involved in the storing of explosives and weapons inside it.

At the same time another Islamic building related to a cultural society was searched in the Britz area of the capital.

The two men, a Syrian and a Tunisian, remain in police custody as media reports spoke of the suspicion that they come from the 'spectrum' of ISIS.
