    German police said the man from Montenegro carried guns, ammunition and TNT in his car.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — A man transporting guns was caught in the southern German region of Bavaria on Saturday, police are probing him for links to Friday night’s massacre in Paris, a federal police spokesperson said.

    "I can confirm that they apprehended a man who was smuggling weapons in his personal vehicle. We are now looking into whether he is connected to the terror attacks in Paris," German police told RIA Novosti.

    Earlier on Saturday, Germany offered France the help of its security forces after a string of near-simultaneous gun and bomb attacks on Paris restaurants and a concert hall killed at least 128 people.
