    A German city is in lockdown as armed police are hunting for a man suspected of planning a bomb attack on an airport.

    The suspect has been named as Jaber Albakr - a Syrian who was under surveillance by the Federal Office for Constitutional Protection in Cologne, say reports.

    He is a 22-year-old who was born in Damascus.

    He is suspected of plotting a bomb attack on a German airport, according to Online Focus.

    It is understood the suspect entered Germany last year with refugees from Syria.

    Residents have been ordered to remain indoors as large-scale closures and evacuations take place in the town and the suspect remains at large.

    Police have arrested two people in connection with the planned attacks but haven't confirmed their identities.

    Pictures of an arrested man being taken away by police were released a few hours after the manhunt began.

    But it is unclear if the detainee is Albakr or what role the photographed man played in the planned terror plots.

    Officers are surrounding a home in Chemnitz and the force tweeted: 'At the moment we have a static threat situation in the Fritz-Heckert area in Chemnitz, C0810 and with strong forces on the ground.'

    Residents have been ordered to remain indoors.

    The police force, Polizei Sachsen, said they are currently involved in a large-scale operation in Chemnitzon suspicion of someone preparing a bomb attack.

    It has been reported a controlled explosion was carried out at the flat.

    They said the suspect had not been found and that major closures and evacuations would be necessary.

    The force added: 'Please stay within the enclosed area in your homes and observe the instructions of the police here and in the field.'

    Video footage obtained by MailOnline shows an enormous police presence with officers directing traffic away from the scene.

    Tom Bernhardt, spokesman for the state criminal police in Saxony, said officers had acted on intelligence it received last night and that their actions foiled a 'serious threat'.

    He added: 'We must assume that the person is dangerous.'

    Officials earlier said it would not speculate on claims they were dealing with a hostage situation.

    They said: 'Please help the emergency services by avoiding the area.'

    Officials have yet to confirm the full details of the operation, but a local German journalist has tweeted to say the area is likely to be evacuated for what he called an 'explosive danger'.

    Chemnitz, a city of more than 200,000 people, is in Germany's east, lying to the south of Berlin and Leipzig, not far from the border with the Czech Republic.

    Germany has been rocked by terror attacks this year, heaping pressure on chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door immigration policy.

    A bloody week of violence that rocked Germany began on July 18 when Pakistani teenager Riaz Khan Ahmadzai, 17, posing as an Afghan refugee, hacked at passengers on a train in Wurzburg with an axe, wounding five.

    He was shot dead by police.

    Four days later mentally unstable German-Iranian teenager Ali Sonboly shot nine people dead during a rampage through a shopping centre in Munich before taking his own life.

    Sonboly claimed he was taking revenge for being bullied at school with no political motive to the murderous rampage.

    Two days later a Syrian refugee, 21, hacked a pregnant woman to death in Reutlingen and on the same night Daleel, 27, injured 12 people when he detonated a rucksack packed with metal shards and screws.

    Daleel carried out the attack on behalf of the terror group ISIS and had planned to kill hundreds by detonating him bomb at an open-air music festival.

    He was only thwarted after being turned away by security guard Pascal Bohm and instead detonated his rucksack bomb outside a wine bar.

    Merkel embarks on a visit to three African countries on Sunday before hosting leaders from Chad and Nigeria for talks in Berlin, as she seeks ways to stem a migrant influx to Europe.

    Merkel will first travel to Mali and Niger before heading to Ethiopia where she is to visit the headquarters of the African Union in the capital, Addis Ababa.

    Her talks with leaders of all three countries are to focus on migration issues and the battle against jihadist groups.

    On Wednesday, a day after her return to Berlin, she will host Chadian President Idriss Deby.

    She will cap off the week by meeting with Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari to discuss the African giant's battle against Boko Haram Islamists.

    Drawing attention to Merkel's trip to Africa, Jordan's King Abdullah II commended the German leader for taking a 'holistic approach' to dealing with the migrant challenge.

    'It's not just Syria and Iraq, it's north Africa, it's east and west Africa and here I want to commend the chancellor's role because there are very leaders in the world who look at the challenges we are facing... as a global problem,' he told journalists.

    Merkel has also said that she wants the European Union and North African countries to do deals modelled on a controversial agreement with Turkey to curb migrant flows to Europe.

    Under the EU-Turkey agreement, Ankara agreed to take back one Syrian who made it to Greece in return for being allowed to send one from its massive refugee camps to the bloc in a more orderly redistribution programme.

    The deal also pledges billions of euros in EU aid for Turkey, visa-free European travel for Turkish citizens and accelerated EU membership talks."

    The explosive material they found was TATP. That's the same material which was used for the Paris and Brussels terror attacks.
