    Germany reportedly deported a Moroccan national, who had been detained on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack near the Russian embassy in Berlin.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — Germany's district court in Leipzig decided to deport a Moroccan national, who had been detained on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack near the Russian embassy in Berlin, local media reported Friday.

    According to the TAG24 online media outlet, 25-year-old Moroccan immigrant Mohammed B. has been transferred to one of the penitentiary facilities in the Rheinland-Pfalz state in southwestern Germany before being deported to his home country.

    The suspect was detained on April 11 during an anti-terrorist raid at a refugee facility in Borsdorf near Leipzig.

    According to German media reports, he could have been planning the attack seeking revenge on Russia for its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.
