German authorities say they have arrested a 17-year-old Syrian national suspected of planning a suicide attack in Berlin.
The arrest took place in the Uckermark district northeast of Berlin, said Karl-Heinz Schroeter, the interior minister of the state of Brandenburg.
Police said the suspect, whose name wasn't released, came to Germany in 2015 and registered as an asylum-seeker. The teenager has been living in a home for young refugees in Uckermark since 2016.
There was no immediate information about the alleged plot.
In December, a Tunisian citizen drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people. The attacker, Anis Amri, was later shot dead by police in Italy.
The extremist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.
