Security alert at German hospital

Police in Germany have increased security at a military hospital in the city of Hamburg after a bomb warning. City police said they had received a tip suggesting that extremists were planning a suicide car bomb attack. “Those potentially involved are believed to come from an Islamic, terrorist background,” police said in a statement quoted by the AP news agency. Several streets around the hospital have been sealed off and will remain so until further notice, police said. Hamburg police said in their statement they received the information from unnamed “security sources” at 1430 local time (1330 GMT), AP reported. The bomb would have been placed right outside the gates of the military hospital in the suburb of Wandsbek, they said. There has been speculation that US forces injured in Iraq are being treated at the facility. Full Story
