On suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack using poisonous cyanide and ricin in German Castrop-Rauxel in North Rhine-Westphalia detained two people. According to Tagesschau, one of them was a 32-year-old Iranian.
The exact motives for the actions during the preparation of the terrorist attack were not announced by the press. It is known that among the detainees was also the brother of an Iranian citizen. The special services received information about the preparation of a terrorist attack from an informed source, after which they found chemicals at the place of residence of the Iranian.
Ricin, made from castor bean seeds, has been designated a “biological weapon” by the Robert Koch Institute. A lethal outcome when exposed to ricin on the body occurs within one and a half to three days.
