BERLIN — Pakistan has arrested a German wanted on terrorism charges at home, according to a German military spokesman Saturday.

The Foreign Ministry said Saturday that Pakistani authorities had confirmed they were holding a man from Frankfurt identified as Rami M.

A ministry spokesman didn't comment on media reports saying Rami M. was wanted in Germany for membership in a terrorist group, nor on reports he was planning a terrorist attack on Germany's embassy in Islamabad.

Der Spiegel magazine and Berliner Zeitung daily reported that Rami M. had phoned the embassy, asking for documents to leave Pakistan.
