Security tightened in Germany following Al-Qaeda warning
Berlin, Sep 19(ANI): A new Al-Qaeda video threatening Germany of a terror attack ahead of the national elections has prompted the Germany government to beef up security across the country.
In the 26-minute video, a man reportedly identified as Bekkay Harrach, speaking in German and using the pseudonym Abu Talha, demanded Germans to push their political parties to withdraw soldiers from Afghanistan to avoid "a rude awakening" after the polls on September 27.
It is also said that Harrach has also featured in previous messages, which threatened Germany.
"In a democracy, only the people can order its soldiers home. But, if the people decides for the continuation of the war, it has delivered its own verdict," Sky News quoted the speaker, as saying.
"The parliamentary election is the people's only opportunity to shape the policy of the country. With the withdrawal of the last German soldiers, the last mujaheed also will be withdrawn from Germany," he added.
The speaker further said that Muslims in Germany should "stay away from anything not vital for the two weeks after the elections", implying that an attack can take place during that period.
Following the threat security has been tightened particularly at airports and stations, including Tegel airport in Berlin.(ANI)
