German police say they have detained two men in Berlin on suspicion of obtaining chemicals that could be used to make a bomb.

Thomas Neuendorff, a spokesman for Berlin police, said officers were searching the apartments of the men, a 24-year-old German of Lebanese descent and a 28-year-old from Gaza, early Thursday.

Neuendorff said the two men, who were not identified, were suspected of planning a "violent criminal act".

He said police were also searching an Islamic cultural centre where the two men spent time.

They were searching for "chemical substances that can be used to make an explosive device," he said

I wonder if they had to take off their shoes before searching the moslem cultural center for explosives?

Great. Just great. A big thank you to Schröder’s government again, for handing out passports to this scum!

This is not the first terrorist attack that has been thwarted in Germany in recent years. Nice job by the agencies.
