A plot to carry out a biological attack using ricin has been foiled in Germany, officials say.

A 29-year-old Tunisian, identified only as Sief Allah H, was arrested on Wednesday before a search took place in his apartment in Cologne.

Investigators say he started procuring material online including seeds needed for the creation of ricin in mid-May. They said he succeeded in creating the toxin this month and investigators found it in the search of his flat.

They are still investigating how the suspect planned to use the toxin, but said he was working on an attack in Germany.

German news weekly Der Spiegel reported that Sief Allah H. was thought to have been following instructions disseminated by ISIS on how to build a bomb containing ricin.

But prosecutors said they have no evidence of a connection with any extremist organisation.

They did not comment on a report that American intelligence tipped off German investigators.

He procured 1,000 seeds from a variety of bean online as well as an electronic coffee grinder, prosecutors said. Parts of the bean are highly poisonous and can be used to create ricin.

The Bild newspaper reported that the suspect bought bomb-making material and chemicals used in the production of the ricin.

The daily newspaper wrote that he lived in the Chorweiler neighbourhood of Cologne with his wife and four children.

Ricin has no known antidote and is one of the world’s most lethal toxins. It is 6,000 times more powerful than cyanide.
