Terror plot foiled in Frankfurt Germany

HT to LGF and Israel at Level Ground here:
German authorities probing foiled plot to smuggle bomb onto passenger airplane in Frankfurt. German paper reports security sources believe target was plane of Israeli airline

Suspects' nationality undisclosed

"The suspects were temporarily taken into custody and informed of the suspicions against them before they were released on Saturday, with the exception of one wanted in connection with another crime," the office said.

The men are suspected of being members of a terrorist organization, the office said. It did not explain why the suspects, who remain under investigation, had been released.

"I can't comment on the particularities about the decision to release them," said a spokesman for the interior ministry. Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency also declined comment.

The prosecutor's office said it had searched nine apartments on Friday in the western German states of Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse to gather evidence.

It gave no details about the nationality of the suspects.

Police uncovered a failed plot by two young Lebanese men to detonate suitcase bombs on trains in western Germany in July.

I too question why the authorities won't name the nationality of the ring leaders of the terrorist group. If they are Islamic please report it. They want us to be fearfull. We need to fight and
be brave!
