Berlin: German police say a woman has been
arrested while trying to throw a small suitcase filled with
fireworks on the grounds of the Israeli Embassy.

Berlin police said today the suitcase contained less than
10 fireworks, no trigger mechanism and posed no real security
threat. The 40-year-old suspect also attempted to throw
newspapers articles featuring swastikas on the embassy
grounds.

Police say the woman, whose identity was withheld because
of German privacy laws, was rapidly apprehended by the
embassy`s security guards and subsequently arrested by police
late yesterday.

They say she has been released but is now under
investigation for possession of illegal explosives and the use
of unconstitutional signs. Displaying Nazi symbols such as the
swastika is forbidden in Germany.
