Deadly toxic ricin found with Tunisian extremist, in Germany.
As reported by the prosecutors of Germany on Thursday, an Islamic extremist has been thwarted planning a mortal attack with fatal toxin ricin, which is a highly poisonous protein obtained from the pressed seeds of castor oil plant.
According to the government prosecutors, a man Tunisian aging 29 years recognized as Sief Allah H. has been arrested on Wednesday, who started acquiring materials online that included the seeds to produce ricin in May. The suspected man lived in the Chorweiler neighborhood of Cologne with his wife and four children.
The man was reportedly successful in making toxic ricin this month; fortunately the federal investigators grabbed it while searching his apartment in Cologne. However, the examiners are still in search to know how the man might have planned the use of toxin, alleging he was planning for an attack in Germany.
A terrorism expert, Elmar Thevessen said in a statement that, “Ricin is deadlier than then the venom of a cobra. A tiny amount is enough to kill an adult. In can be dissolved in water or added to food. There is no antidote.”
Investigators said that, “He procured 1,000 castor bean seeds online as well as an electronic coffee grinder.” They reported that as of now, there are no strong evidences have been yet obtained that can be connected with any extremist organization. They did not mentioned any immediate comment to the reporters as the American intelligence overturned off German investigators.
