BERLIN, October 25. (ITAR-TASS). — Special police forces detained the man that held 12 hostages in a diner of German city of Freiburg (federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg), according to local police representatives.
Among the 12 people who were held all night at the diner, were several children. Some streets located near the café were blocked for 10 hours.
Earlier, several controversial reports came from the site of the incident. Initially, it was reported that the suspect was detained; however, later the police denied this information.
Police classified the incident not as hostage taking, but a potentially dangerous situation, proceeding from allegations that some people might have been staying at the café voluntarily. The offender didn’t put forward any claims.
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.
