Germany Warns of Imminent Terror Attacks

According to German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière:

“There is information from our foreign partners that planned attacks are allegedly to be carried out at the end of November,” he said in Berlin, describing a “new situation” regarding the Islamist threat towards the nation.

“There’s reason to be worried, but no reason for hysteria,” he said, mentioning “concrete leads” being followed by the authorities.

De Maizière said he had put federal police on alert and ordered heightened security at German airports and train stations.

"From today, there will be a more visible police presence. I thought it should be explained to citizens," he said.

Presumably, "more visible police presence" means no junk will go untouched. Heh.
