A former Turkish law enforcer was reportedly linked to a plot by several people dressed in German police uniforms to attack the president. A BKA spokesperson confirmed they had been notified but said the threat was assessed as unlikely.

Turkey has previously accused Germany of harboring officers it suspects of being behind the July 2016 failed coup attempt that led to a unprecedented purge.
