Germany increased security at airports and train stations Wednesday, after the government received indications a terrorist attack may be planned for the end of November.
There were “concrete investigative leads,” that militant Islamist groups were planning attacks on Germany, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told a news conference, but gave no details.
Intelligence agents feared attacks on Christmas markets or similar popular events, media reported.
The alert came weeks after parcel bombs sent by air courier from Yemen were intercepted at airports in Dubai and Britain, including one which passed through German airspace.
