German federal prosecutors said Thursday they suspected an "Islamist motivation" was behind the fatal shooting of two US airmen on a military bus at Frankfurt airport.

"In view of the circumstances, there is a suspicion that this was an act with Islamist motivation," prosecutors said, as police questioned a 21-year-old suspect of Kosovan origin arrested after Wednesday's attack.
