Turkish police have arrested a suspected al-Qaida member accused of being part of a plot to carry out massive bombings against US-related targets in Germany, German and Turkish authorities said Wednesday. Attila Selek, a 22-year-old German national, was arrested Tuesday in the central Anatolian city of Konya on charges of membership in a terrorist organization and preparing to carry out bomb attacks. He was arrested on a German warrant and Berlin has asked for his extradition, said Sonja Heine, a spokeswoman for the German Federal Prosecutor's Office.
