Germany: no indication of any imminent attack
BERLIN — Germany’s Interior Ministry says it sees no need to change its assessment of risks to the country in the wake of a U.S. travel alert and says there are “still no concrete indications of imminent attacks” there.
The Interior Ministry said in a statement Sunday the government had been informed in advance of the U.S. plan to publish a travel alert for Europe.
It says German security authorities are always examining the necessary security levels and consulting with the U.S. and other international partners.
But it says that the government “does not see any reason for a change in the evaluation of the concrete threat level.”
