BERLIN (AP) – German news agency dpa reports 3 people arrested near Aachen in connection with Paris attacks.

German police say they are questioning three people arrested near the western city of Aachen after a tip that one of them might be linked to the Paris attacks.

Police spokesman Werner Schneider says the trio were arrested Tuesday morning by a SWAT team in Alsdorf, just northeast of Aachen and near the border with Belgium.

The two women and one man were arrested as they left a job center at around 9:30 a.m., according to local media reports.

Schneider said on German news channel n-tv that it was “much too early to go into detail” about the identity of those arrested, but said they were foreign nationals.

He says police were conducting searches in the area.
