AACHEN, Germany - German police will release the seven people detained earlier on Tuesday over suspicion that they were linked to the attacks in Paris last week, a spokeswoman said.

"There is no reason that they continue to be detained," she said. "According to the investigation they are not the people we are looking for."

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said during a news conference the suspects arrested had no direct link to the suicide bombings and shooting attacks on restaurants, a music hall and a sports stadium in Paris on Friday night.

"There was evidence that this might have been a big fish," de Maiziere said. "The arrest was successful but the person doesn't seem to be the one we're looking for."

A manhunt is on in France and Belgium for one of the eight attackers involved in the attacks.
