A young Syrian has been arrested over an attack earlier this month on two German tourists, one of whom later died, in the eastern German city of Dresden, authorities said Wednesday.
Prosecutors said they suspect the man may have had an Islamic extremist motive for the attack, news agency dpa reported.
The 20-year-old was arrested on Tuesday evening, police and prosecutors in Dresden said.
