Nairobi: Authorities in Kenya have arrested a German national suspected to be involved in terrorist activities.

Sascha Alessadro Bottcher, 23, was arrested on Tuesday in the coastal town of Mtwapa following a countrywide alert, police spokesman Erick Kiraithe said.

The German is a Muslim convert who arrived in Kenya through the Moi international airport in Mombasa in September, Xinhua reported.
Bottcher`s whereabouts had earlier remained unknown and authorities said they were apprehensive because he had written a will before leaving Germany, saying he was going to Somalia and would not return alive.
