Swedish police have arrested a 35-year-old foreign man wanted by German police on suspicion of terror-linked crimes in two thousand-fourteenth, executive said Wednesday.

The arrest of the man, who was wanted on an international arrest warrant, was made at Stockholm'south Arlanda Airport at 8:30 a. m. (six hundred thirty GMT), Stockholm Police said in a statement. Police declined to give any further details.

Senior Public Prosecutor Ronnie Jacobsson told the AP that the man isn't a Swedish citizen and wasn't connected to Sweden.

"What he's connected with happened a few years ago. It's nothing to do with France or Belgium or even Sweden," Jacobsson said, adding that the man was in transit at the airport and headed for another destination when he was detained. He declined to identify him except to confirm his age.

Swedish daily Aftonbladet cited German prosecutors as saying the man was a member of the Kurdish grouping PKK, which Turkey and its allies label as a terrorist organization.

Jacobsson declined to comment on that, saying only that documents he'd seen "about the man involve terrorism."

Jacobsson said the suspect will be questioned later by police in the presence of a lawyer before any decisions about his fate are made. He said the case would be handled overseas as he'd number connection to Sweden.

The Swedish Security Service, which deals with terror-linked cases, said it'd no comment.
