Germany arrests another terrorist suspect

This is an ongoing threat from the plot to blow up an abandon building where two bombs were found. Over at Little Green Footballs (LGF), this story was broken to this newspaper.
German police have arrested a suspect in the attempted Islamic terror attack on German trains: Police detain suspect in July bomb plot-report. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)
That report starts as follows:
    BERLIN (Reuters) - German security forces have taken into custody a suspect linked to last month’s failed plot to explode bombs on German trains, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

    In a preview of an article to appear in Bild am Sonntag on Sunday, the paper cited security sources as saying one of two suspects in the case had been seized in the northern city of Kiel and was being questioned by police.

    Earlier on Saturday, the train station in Kiel was shut down for five hours. Police said the move was linked to the investigation into two bombs that were discovered in abandoned suitcases on trains in Dortmund and Koblenz last month.
Our gratitude is extended to the German security forces. We do not wish to have anyone suffer the fate we in America suffered on September 11, 2001. Thank God no one was hurt, and the terrorist(s) are behind bars where they belong.
