Namibian police find suspect object on plane: Germany


Namibian police intercepted a suspicious object with a detonator and a running clock in luggage on an Air Berlin plane from Windhoek to Munich, Germany’s Federal Crime Office (BKA) said.

The BKA said it was not clear if the object found during loading of the Airbus jet on Wednesday was an ignitable explosive, Reuters reports.

Germany stepped up security measures on Wednesday after saying it had received intelligence pointing to a planned attack in the country towards the end of this month.
