Prosecutors in the southern German city of Stuttgart confirmed on Friday they had arrested a 34-year-old man on suspicion of arms dealing but declined to comment on a report that he may have supplied the militants in Paris with four guns. "I can confirm that a man is in custody on suspicion of arms trading," a spokesman for the prosecutor in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg told Reuters, adding that the arrest had been made on Tuesday. Earlier on Friday, German newspaper Bild reported that the man was suspected of selling four weapons to the militants who killed 130 people in Paris on Nov. 13.
By William Schomberg LONDON (Reuters) - British house price growth slowed this month, according to a survey published on Friday which suggested the recovery in the housing market, which recently pushed prices to new record highs, is advancing at a modest pace. Mortgage lender Nationwide said house prices rose by a less-than-expected 0.1 percent in monthly terms in November compared with a 0.5 percent increase in October. House prices rose 3.7 percent in year-on-year terms, slowing from 3.9 percent in October.
