A Syrian migrant suspected of planning a bomb attack on a Berlin airport has committed suicide in policy custody, Spiegel Online reported on Wednesday, citing judicial sources.

The news website said Jaber Albakr had been under round-the-clock surveillance due to an acute risk of suicide and hunger strike. It was not yet clear how he had killed himself, Spiegel said.

Reuters was not immediately able to confirm the report.
