The police had arrested a 16-year-old in Essen last week after a witness.

He is suspected of having prepared a terrorist attack.

Now the Attorney General is investigating.

Karlsruhe - After the allegedly foiled bomb attack on a school in Essen, the federal public prosecutor took over the investigation of the suspected high school student.

The reason for this is the special significance of the crime, said a spokeswoman for the Federal Prosecutor's Office on Monday at the German Press Agency in Karlsruhe.

In the case of certain criminal offences, such as the preparation of a serious act of violence that is dangerous to the state, this is a prerequisite for the Federal Public Prosecutor General to be able to initiate investigations.

The 16-year-old is suspected of having prepared a right-wing extremist terrorist attack at his school.

The German teenager is already in custody on the basis of an arrest warrant issued by the Düsseldorf public prosecutor.
