Police Foil Biological Attack in Germany
German federal authorities have arrested a 29-year-old Tunisian man in Cologne on suspicion of plotting an attack with one of the world’s deadliest poisons. Sief Allah H, as police identified him, has been charged with producing biological weapons. Noting that this was “a first for Germany,” investigators say the man had manufactured ricin, which has no known antidote and is 6,000 times deadlier than cyanide. German police, who believe the suspect has links to ISIS, were reportedly tipped off by the CIA based on his online purchases of ricin supplies.
