(Newser) – Terrorists may be planning to stage an attack in Germany later this month, according to evidence gathered by security officials in the country. CNN reports that Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told reporters today that officials have "have logged increased indications" in the last few months, "according to which the terror organization al-Qaeda is believed to be planning to carry out attacks." "Further insights and facts relevant to danger" have created "a new situation" he said, noting that there is "reason for concern but no reason for hysteria."
