BERLIN (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 17th January, 2021) The Frankfurt Airport was partially closed on Saturday after a 38-year-old Slovenian national yelled "Allahu Akbar" at law enforcement officers in Terminal 1, the German Federal Police said.
On Saturday, the Frankfurt Airport announced a partial closure of its Terminal 1 and train station due to a large-scale police operation. German media reported after the operation was over that two people had been arrested after suspicious luggage was found at the airport. According to police, the luggage was eventually found to be of no threat.
"At around 5:16 p.m. [16:16 GMT], a federal police patrol approached a Slovenian man who was not wearing mouth and nose protection. He immediately showed aggressive behavior towards the officers and said, 'I will kill you all, Allahu Akbar'," the German Federal Police said in a Saturday statement.
"Since a connection between the two incidents could not be ruled out, this led to the expansion of the cordoning off and evacuation measures. A large number of emergency services searched the entire airport area for the allegedly armed person. In the course of this, the regional train station was closed at around 5:30 p.m.," police said.
The Slovenian national is currently under investigation for suspected threats and resistance to law enforcement officials. His motives are unclear.
