The arrest of a 51-year-old man in Germany last week after firearms were discovered in his car has been linked to the Paris attacks, according to media reports.

Public broadcaster Bayrischer Rundfunk said German authorities informed French officials about the arrest of the man near the German-Austrian border on November 5. It did not provide a source for its information.

Bavarian state police spokesman Ludwig Waldinger confirmed that firearms, explosives and hand grenades were found.

Mr Waldinger said: “We are providing no further information at this point.”
