German official calls for registration of chemical purchases in wake of terror arrests
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 09 - 09 - 2007

Germany's justice minister on Sunday
proposed that purchasers of dangerous chemicals should have
to supply identification, after three suspected Islamic
militants were arrested on suspicion of planning massive
terror bombings using hydrogen peroxide, according to AP.
«The fact that the chemicals in the case of the three
arrested suspects could be freely bought without
registering the purchaser is, I think not, particularly
fortunate,» Brigitte Zypries said on Deutschlandfunk
radio. She said she was reviewing whether to make a formal
proposal to the Environment Ministry for such a measure.
The three suspects, arrested Tuesday by an elite
anti-terror squad at a rented cottage in central Germany,
had stockpiled 730 kilograms (1,600 pounds) of 35-percent
hydrogen peroxide in large blue jugs purchased from a
chemical supplier. Officials said they could have mixed the
peroxide with other substances to make explosives
equivalent to 550 kilograms (1,200 pounds) of dynamite.
Bombs made from hydrogen peroxide have been used in terror
attacks including the bombings that killed 52 people in
London in 2005.
In low concentrations, hydrogen peroxide is used as a
disinfectant and to bleach hair.
German police arrested Fritz Martin Gelowicz, 28,
described as the leader of an Islamic Jihad Union terror
cell in Germany, and Daniel Martin Schneider, 22, both
German converts to Islam. The third suspect has been
identified as Adem Yilmaz, 29, born in Turkey but also
living in Germany.
Prosecutors said the three formed a German cell of the
radical Islamic Jihad Union, an offshoot of the Islamic
Movement of Uzbekistan, a jihadist group with origins in
Central Asia. The three had attended terrorist training
camps in Pakistan, officials said.
