The 31-year-old placed a backpack with the fake bombs on the course of the parade. The bomb squad used a robot to check the package before determining it was a hoax.

The man appears to be known already to German police – but not for placing fake bombs. There’s no suggestion of any links to extremist organisations.

The man continues to be questioned.
