BERLIN, October 25. (ITAR-TASS). — A man barricaded himself in a diner in Germany’s Freiburg taking 12 people as hostages, according to local media reports.
Freigburg’s police denied media reports that the operation of capturing the 36-year-old Kurd has been completed. Earlier media reported that police forced a man in handcuffs out the diner.
Law enforcement officers noted that the point at issue was one of the persons that were inside the outlet, and handcuffs were put on him on security reasons. He is currently interrogated by police. It cannot be ruled out that he was one of the accomplices of the criminal that remains inside the building. No other details are available.
Despite the fact that together with the wrongdoer there another 12 people inside the café, police prefers not to classify it as taking hostages, but as a potentially dangerous situation. Police officers suppose that some people may stay there voluntarily. No claims were put forward yet.
“Earlier he was tried for weapons storage and on Thursday missed the court hearing without due cause. Apparently, those who remains in the café, were trying to over-persuade him,” police said.
Initially, the 36-year-old Kurd national claimed that he had a bomb; however, this information hasn’t been confirmed yet. Police told Itar-Tass that the abuser carried a canister with flammable liquid.
Among the 12 people detained at the diner were several children. Some streets around the site of the incident have been blocked for 10 hours.
"Ранее он был судим за хранение оружия и в четверг без уважительной причины пропустил судебное заседание. По всей видимости, те, кто находится сейчас с ним в кафе, пытались его переубедить", - сообщили в правоохранительных органах.
