Berlin - German police arrested a suspect on Wednesday in connection with a bombing at a train station 17 years ago in which 10 immigrants - six of them Jewish - were injured, officials said.
Police in the western city of Duesseldorf said the 50-year-old man, whose name wasn't released, was arrested in the nearby town of Ratingen.
Following the explosion at the Duesseldorf-Wehrhahn train station on July 27 2000, suspicion quickly fell on far-right extremists, because those hurt were recent immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
The people had been on their way home from a German-language class when the pipe bomb exploded. Among the wounded was a 26-year-old woman from Ukraine who suffered a miscarriage.
A few months later, a Duesseldorf synagogue was firebombed.
German news site Spiegel Online reported that the suspect was known at the time for having far-right views and operating a store selling military gear near the site of the bombing.
