German prosecutors say a Syrian man arrested at the weekend in the west of the country tried to get funds from ISIL to carry out a terrorist attack.

The 38-year-old was detained on Saturday in the province of Saarland and is said to have contacted the so-called Islamic State seeking money to buy vehicles to drive into crowds.

Police say they intercepted messages on his mobile phone which showed he asked for 180,000 euros to buy eight vehicles.
