BERLIN (Reuters) - The Tunisian man arrested in Germany on Wednesday on suspicion of recruiting for Islamic State and building up a network of supporters to carry out a terrorist attack was an asylum seeker, prosecutors said in a statement.

The man had already been in Germany between 2003 and April 2013 and re-entered the country as an asylum seeker in August 2015, prosecutors said.
