Police and judicial officials in the German state of Saxony faced a blaze of criticism Thursday after a Syrian man suspected of plotting to bomb a Berlin airport killed himself in a detention center where he had been deemed not at risk of suicide.Politicians from across the spectrum attacked Merkel's conservatives who rule in Saxony after the suicide, which followed the bungled police attempt – acting on a secret service tip-off – to catch Albakr Saturday.The chief of the detention center, Rolf Jacob, said Albakr was questioned by a psychologist at the center and determined not to be at serious risk of committing suicide.The Syrian, who arrived in Germany in February last year, appeared calm and was monitored at 15 minute intervals.
