A senior officer in Namibia's airport police has been arrested over the discovery of a suspect package at Windhoek airport that sparked an international alert, police said Saturday.

"The arrested man is a high ranking officer at the airport in the police aviation security unit," Namibia's police chief Sebastian Ndeitunga told reporters.

The suspect parcel that was to be put on a Munich-bound charter plane was a harmless US-made dummy used to test security checks, Germany's interior minister said Friday.
