New security situation in Germany, attacks planned: minister
There are concrete indications of attacks being planned in Germany, including one this month, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said Wednesday, speaking of a "new security situation" in the country.
"From today, there will be a visible police presence. I thought it should be explained to citizens," said De Maiziere at a hastily called press conference in Berlin.
"There is reason for concern, but no reason for hysteria," he added.
