    A man was spotted in a car park at Schoenefeld airport shortly after 8 am (6:00 GMT) this morning and threatened officials with a bottle when they approached.

    Brandenburg police stated that the suspect was wearing a vest with wires hanging out and that he had other items of luggage with him.

    "There is currently no any danger to people at Schoenefeld Airport. The identity of the man is not yet clear. The vest has been removed from the suspect. The seized items are currently being investigated by special forces," the police said in a tweet. 

    "The man at Schoenefeld had a vest on him with cables and wires hanging out. He also had more luggage with him. Special forces were requested for investigation. Therefore, parking lot P6, the alpine hut and the glass underpass were shut off," the police said earlier on Twitter.

    A later post by the Brandenburg police says that the suspect has been taken into custody.

    No restrictions have been made at the airport; all flights are proceeding according to the schedule.
