Hamburg closed


"German authorities uncover suicide car bomb plot by al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Islam against a Hamburg military hospital which has treated US troops. An alternative target was US air base. Security stepped up in hospital and surrounding streets closed."

And Spiegel eleborates on suspicions that these are Ansar-al-Islam terrorists already in the country and ready to strike. Further, they note that the group is consolidating Kurdish terrorists cells to establish connections to al-Qaida. The Kurds, remember them? Saddam Husein's supposed "own people" who he bombed? Nice group of folks, themses are. Known for years of attempted and realized strikes against Germany's Turkish minority.
