Instagram 'bomb threat': German police arrest Afghan asylum seeker



A 19-year-old Afghan asylum seeker has been arrested in Germany after posting a picture of a Christmas market with three bombs superimposed on it on Instagram, police say.

 
The picture of the market in Ravensburg, southern Germany, was uploaded on Thursday evening, prompting police quickly to boost security.


The Afghan later admitted uploading the image, saying it had been a joke.


He is to face charges of making threats to commit crime.


His accommodation was searched but investigators found nothing to suggest the threat was real, police said in a statement.
