U.S. and German agencies are investigating a potential terror plot against U.S. military bases, buildings and citizens in Germany, officials said yesterday.
Authorities had no indication of an imminent attack within Germany or the U.S., FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko said. "We remind the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the appropriate law-enforcement authorities," he said.
The possible plot was first made public April 20 when the U.S. Embassy in Berlin issued a warning, telling U.S. diplomatic and consular facilities in Germany to increase security and asking Americans there to increase their vigilance. Security outside U.S. bases in Germany also was increased.
Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the White House's National Security Council, said, "The United States is working with German authorities, as we do with our allies around the world, to counter any potential terrorist activity."
