European railway faces Al Qaeda threat
According to Bild, potential attacks could involve bombs on trains and in tunnels, as well as tampering with electric cables and train tracks.
German security forces have stationed discrete police officers at various train stations in response to the information, reported Bild.
The train scare comes after American intelligence services intercepted communication between Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri and more than 20 other Al Qaeda members, causing the U.S. and other Western nations to temporarily shutter their embassies in the region.
