BERLIN – Namibian police found a suspect package at Windhoek airport in routine security checks for a German tourist flight to Munich, Namibian and German authorities said on Thursday.

German authorities, who stepped up security at airports and train stations on Wednesday, on intelligence that Islamist militants were planning attacks in the next two weeks, sent police to Namibia to help with an investigation.

Police in Windhoek declined to comment on information given by German federal police that the package contained a detonator, batteries and a running clock.

Namibian police deputy inspector general Vilio Hifindaka said the package was found in routine X-ray screening but he declined to confirm or deny that it contained explosives.
