German linked to terror cell charged

world Updated: Oct 08, 2009 17:43 IST

Prosecutors have brought charges against a 38-year-old German man who sold more than 1,280 pounds (585 kilograms) of chemicals used in making explosives to a member of a group of alleged terror plotters.

Verden prosecutors said the man, who was not identified, faces 55 counts of violating German explosives laws for selling the hydrogen peroxide to one of four men who are being tried in Duesseldorf for allegedly forming a radical Islamic terrorist cell that plotted to attack U.S. targets in Germany in 2007.

Prosecutors said on Thursday that such a large order of the chemicals should have raised suspicion of a potential danger.
