Germany Worried About Increased Terrorism Threat

Concerned about reports of German Islamists being trained in terrorist camps in Pakistan and an increased danger level, security officials and politicians are pushing to expand the catalogue of anti-terrorism measures. Security officials voiced concern over the weekend about a growing terrorism threat after a newspaper reported that German Islamists, who had been trained in camps in Pakistan, had returned to Germany in June. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung said the German interior ministry knew about 14 Islamists from Germany who had been in Pakistan or were still there. It added that authorities were calculating that more individuals from Germany would be trained in al Qaeda-run terrorist camps.
