An Austrian terror suspect arrested this week was plotting to crash a plane into the Reichstag building in Berlin, which houses the German parliament, a report said Saturday. Officials said a German with links to the suspect was also detained.
The suspect, who has been named only as Thomas al-J. and is a 25-year-old Austrian national who converted to Islam, was arrested Wednesday in his Vienna flat on suspicion of recruiting for terror training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan and of financing a terrorist organization - the German Taliban Mujahideen (DTM).
Austria last year passed a law that foresees up to five years in prison for any person attending a terror camp abroad.

The Federal Prosecutor's office does not see any relevant illegal connections.
Don´t know what to think of it. Time will tell.
