Police puzzle ‘Concrete Evidence’ of Munich terror plan, lift alert

Police in Munich have said they received concrete evidence that a terror act was planned for New Year in the Bavarian capital. Investigators are not sure if the potential attackers remain in the city.

Munich police chief Hubertus Andrä told a news conference on Friday that German officials had received a “very concrete” tip that suicide attacks were planned in Munich.

He added that that there was now thought to be no “imminent danger,” although it was unclear whether possible suspects were on the loose.

Andrä’s comments came after the evacuations of both the central train station and a station in the western Pasing district, both among the possible targets, on Thursday evening. According to Andrä, five to seven people were involved in the possible plan.
