a bomb and we also know that the suspect was in contact online with people with jihadist backgrounds and it has one in g.r. distortion spectral mouth shut throughout the morning police searched the apartment and other locations for additional evidence the suspect had placed orders online for chemicals to build a bomb. the german interior minister is convinced authorities have prevented a severe and imminent terrorist attack in germany. to get out some of the police operation took place at exactly the right moment light enough to secure the necessary proof and early enough to prevent any danger. bonsa can. also set the danger if an islamist terrorist attack remains high in germany and europe and that security forces would act with determination to counter any threats we're now to a former president who appears to be on the run but he says he's not the ousted

president of catalonia carlist voyage tomorrow appeared today in belgium but he said that he is not seeking asylum there now it comes as spain's highest court has just summoned the sacked leader to testify in madrid on thursday. carla spears dumond's first appearance since declaring catalan independence last week was every bet is frenetic as the political fallout he left behind in spain now in belgium the ousted president says he's there for protection not asylum i am not here in order to deliver because. this is not a belgian question i'm here in brussels as a with all of europe i'm here. to act with freedom and safety and security. as he left yet more chaos behind the upstart leader couldn't avoid questions of whether he had fled the scene.
10:08 pm
outside the spanish unity supporters certainly think so. i'm here to defend spain and complain about their past who is a coward and a terror maker for. the courts made to have their say it's a medieval charge sheet from modern times catalan leaders faced up to thirty years in prison for crimes of sedition rebellion and the best moment. but the spanish government does well composed them on support for fresh elections in december seen as a concession to trade. it is very important to respect this call for elections from the prime minister of the spanish government. and this is very important because this implies an acceptance that the return to democratic legality lies with accepting democratic elections that go. back and. dominate the
10:09 pm
airwaves though some were surprised that our former leader turning up in belgium if you could fault his logic when i look at it yes i understand what he's saying right now the spanish government isn't giving him any guarantees the minute he lands here they can put him in prison. in the u.s. but here. whether his bid to break spain up will indeed land him behind bars will be the subject of intense scrutiny not just here but across europe. we want to go now to madrid journalist martin robards is on the story for us this evening good evening to you martin so we understand the spanish high court is summoning the ousted kettle on cabinet what exactly does that mean and you know can anything happen as long as that cabinet is out of the country. well yes well the prosecutor says it already said this if but it fails to show. us the
10:10 pm
just european arrest warrants. where each you know would somebody delay musses or we could become like but i think what needs to be made clear is that. even if they were to appear in court they wouldn't necessarily be arrested i mean this is just the beginning of the whole proceedings i mean yes the prosecutor is going to ask you know the people who appeared to be held to be remanded in custody and so the trial itself of the jokes. you know in theory they could. remain treatment i cannot depends only on the judge yet they could remain free men inventing it that includes the former cattle on president now mr bush to martin said earlier today that he welcomed snap elections in catalonia so does that mean if he were to voluntarily return to spain would he be able to run in these snap elections and possibly be in
10:11 pm
a reelected. well the spanish government spokesman that we can says he was actually welcome to. start running again on the thing to remember here is still a piece i mean poland may have been dissolved well you know there will still be. your problem or descriptive names soviets because remember again on the theory democracy even if they were severely arrested or was in jail because i mean again as with everything else in half of them you don't chances are afraid if you say she is to actually dispose of the boss of the public office criticism has been well that was only after a trial which took of the three years so yeah in theory but it is from china so yeah. it could look from jail or even when yeah i mean it it's amazing if you know when you look at the legalities of the situation and we know that to mr bush to my
10:12 pm
he is in brussels with some of his former cabinet member ministers but not all of them some of them remained in catalonia what do we know what they're doing and is there a you know some kind of strategy behind leaving some of his cabinet behind. but what we do know is. we're approaching this former deputy audiovisual terrorists met with the members of the phone carriers on tuesday which was all it was saying that the couple the use of these well significantly they mustered the whole of the building going to describe this is the full rethink rather than the actual government building again as the stolen bases but it still. within the law they also refused to stay at a press conference afterwards what are they you know what they've actually done well what they did say was that they hadn't adopted any decisions so i mean the time being it just looks like
10:13 pm
a symbolic act of defiance but i think the main thing is that they seem to respect that they will contest the following elections again bring neither all situation they said in the last expected government intervention but they seem to be accepting the consequences which no longer considers the government offices. but also accepted that you know that the elections the reforms called for this were the first of december so again we're in the sort of you know situation yeah that is what it sounds like our correspondent martin roberts on the story forced tonight in madrid martin thank you very much. here's some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world to russia turkey and iran the pledge to bring the syrian regime and its opponents together for a congress thirty three groups and political parties which include the kurds and anti assad rebels have been invited to the talks in the black sea resort of sochi next month officials say the effort is aimed at nudging syria towards lasting peace
