Swiss authorities are investigating a leading figure in a key Muslim organisation on terror-related charges over videos made in Syria.
The unnamed German citizen is a board member of the Islamic Central Council of Switzerland (ICCS).
He is suspected of using videos of his trips to Syria for propaganda purposes.
Switzerland remains on high alert following the terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November that left 130 people dead.
Last week, the city of Geneva raised its security alert following a warning that a cell of so-called Islamic State (IS) was in the area.
