Germans arrest three al Qaeda suspects who posed 'concrete and imminent danger'

The AP reports:

German police on Friday arrested three suspected members of the al-Qaida terrorist organization who officials say posed a “concrete and imminent danger” to the nation.

Authorities did not say whether the three had planned specific targets and offered few details, but security officials said that all three suspects were of Moroccan origin. They also said that two were arrested were in the western German city of Duesseldorf and one in nearby Bochum. The arrests were based on suspicion they were planning a terror attack, they said.

There have been no large-scale terrorist attacks in Germany during the post 9-11 war on terrorism, but back in March a German Muslim of Kosovar descent murdered two US airmen at the Frankfurt airport. And the Germans have been on alert for a Mumbai-style terrorist attack since last November.
