Germany’s Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere, told officials, and the BBC, that there were clear indications that terrorists were targeting the country. He did not give specific information but said that they had been putting different strands of information together and that Al Qaeda was looking on Germany with more interest.

This follows the use of German airports to ship the ‘printer cartridge bombs’ and the ‘disappearance’ of 12 known militants and their reappearance in Afghanistan. This is a volte face, and about turn, from the Interior Minister who had previously dismissed claims of threats to Germany.
