Europe Warned of Terror Attacks

According to officials, a German citizen of Afghan descent was the source of much of the information on a potential “Mumbai-style” terror plot (as the news called it last night) that was apparently forthcoming in Europe.

From CNN:

Ahmed Sidiqi was detained in Kabul in July and transferred to U.S. custody where he has “revealed details about the terror plot,” said the official, who did not want to be named because he is not authorized to talk to the media.

The man and several other Germans traveled from Hamburg to the Afghan-Pakistan border area in 2009, where he joined the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, an extremist group allied with al Qaeda, German intelligence officials said.

Sidiqi, once captured, “started to talk a lot,” and detailed a “Mumbai-style” attack in Europe, the German official said.

Ten men launched a carefully planned attack on buildings in Mumbai, India, on November 26, 2008. The attack on such prominent sites — such as the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower hotel, the Oberoi-Trident hotels, the historic Victoria Terminus train station and a Jewish cultural center — lasted three days and killed 164 people.
