German prosecutors said they had detained a 33-year-old Kurd suspected of being a regional leader of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and carrying out arson attacks on behalf of the banned group. The Federal Prosecutor's Office in Karlsruhe said the Turkish citizen, identified only as Aygul B, had been detained in Dortmund earlier this week. The woman took over a leading position in the PKK for a region of western Germany including Essen, Duisburg and Dortmund.
