German investigators have claimed the Chemnitz bomb plot suspect has links with the Islamic State, according to reports.

A man linked to the suspect, Jaber al-Bakr, has been detained and three others were arrested on Saturday. However Bakr himself is thought to still be at large.

A raid on an apartment uncovered several hundred grams of "highly volatile" explosives, which were later destroyed.
