Three Al-qaeda suspects arrested in GermanyApril 30th, 2011 - 12:03 pm ICT by ANI
Berlin, Apr 30 (ANI): Three suspected members of terrorist outfit Al-qaeda have been arrested in Germany.
Police officials did not say whether the three had planned specific targets, but said they posed a “concrete and imminent danger” to the nation.
All three suspects were of Moroccan origin, said the police.
The arrests “succeeded in averting a concrete and imminent danger, presented by international terrorism,” the CBS News quoted German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich, as saying.
They showed “Germany remains a target of international terrorists,” he added.
A law enforcement source said that one of the suspects has been on the radar of the German federal police for several months.
The source said German authorities are looking into a possible link to recent discovery of explosives in Spain and Austria, and into a possible broader connection with the bombing of Moroccan Cafe in Marrakech. (ANI)
