(RT) — Germany is on its highest level of terror alert since the 1970s, say security authorities in a report seen by Bild. It states that both “lone perpetrators” and “self-sufficient small groups” might be behind future attacks.
“…we must assume that attacks of varying size and intensity are possible at any time in the Federal Republic of Germany,” says a confidential report by the country’s security authorities, seen by Bild.
“The terror threat in Germany hasn't been so great since the time of the Red Army Faction and Baader-Meinhof gang at the end of the 1970s,” a high-ranking security official told Bild, as cited by the Local.
