BERLIN (Reuters) - Syria has been arrested on suspicion of hijacking a truck and ramming several cars in western Germany on Monday evening, German prosecutors said on Tuesday.
German media quoted security officials as saying the incident in Limburg was being treated as a terrorist act.
Prosecutor Ralph Paddle declined to comment on the motive behind the attack on Tuesday, saying it was being treated as attempted murder. He said the truck hit eight cars in the city north of Frankfurt.
The 32-year-old man is due to appear before a judge who will decide whether to issue a formal arrest warrant.
Padell said police searched two addresses linked to the suspect and confiscated mobile phones and storage units. "We cannot provide details about the motive," he said.
On Monday evening (October 7th), 16 people were injured by a red light truck thief who was hit by cars in the center of Limburg in western Germany.
