Exclamation Mumbai style terror attacks alert in Europe and USA

Mumbai style terror attacks alert in Europe and USA

This is scary! After the brazen attacks in Mumbai by armed terrorists, it is now a credible threat that it could happen in Europe (Britain, France, Germany) and USA!!

Terrorist Attack
Officials in Europe, US on High Alert for Commando-Style Raids After Capture of Suspected German Terrorist

US and European officials said Tuesday they have detected a plot to carry out a major, coordinated series of commando-style terror attacks in Britain, France, Germany and possibly the United States.

A senior US official said that while there is a "credible" threat, no specific time or place is known. President Obama has been briefed about the threat, say senior US officials.

Intelligence and law enforcement authorities in the US and Europe said the threat information is based on the interrogation of a suspected German terrorist allegedly captured on his way to Europe in late summer and now being held at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.

US law enforcement officials say they have been told the terrorists were planning a series of "Mumbai-style" commando raids on what were termed "economic or soft" targets in the countries. Pakistani militants killed 173 people with guns and grenades during the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, India.

In testimony before Congress last week, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said, "We are all seeing increased activity by a more diverse set of groups and a more diverse set of threats."

Officials in France have put the country on high alert for a terror attack and authorities in Paris shut down the Eiffel Tower for the second time in two weeks today after what was termed a "false alarm."

No bomb was found but officials in France are taking no chances, given what they believe is a very real threat.

"We currently have reached a spike in the threat of an attack, which is unquestionable," said the head of the French National Police last week. He also said France was at particular risk from al Qaeda's North African affiliate.

The new threat to France, and to Germany and Britain and the U.S., is coming from Pakistan, according to intelligence officials. The captured German reportedly said several teams of attackers, all with European passports, had been trained and dispatched from training camps in Waziristan and Pakistan. Officials say the German claimed the attack plan had been approved by Osama Bin Laden.

US intelligence officials said they believed an attack on American soil was more likely to come from terrorists connected to the al Qaeda group in Yemen, known as AQAP, al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula.

But an official of the New York Police Department said while the most specific information was about Europe, NYPD intelligence officers were following the new information closely. "Nobody here is letting their guard down, the NYPD is watching," the official said.

Re: Mumbai style terror attacks alert in Europe and USA

no country is immune to attacks these days.

but if the system is such that citizen have faith in it, every citizen becomes an eye of the system.
this makes all the difference. the system may not be 100 percent full proof but it can minimize the damage.

Every citizen becoming an eye of the system, quite frankly, sounds pretty scary. I'm not sure I want to live in a KGB style society where everyone spies on everyone else.

These threats have an origin, and that is the terrorist state of Pakistan. The Northwestern Frontier Province is beyond the eyes of the citizens of the UK and EU, and the US for that matter. Action needs to be taken to neutralize the Pakistani and Saudi threat.

This threat may have been averted, but what about the next? The Pakistanis only need to get lucky once to cause massive chaos, damage, and loss of lives. The security and intelligence apparatus of the targeted countries need to get lucky every time to stop them.

Pakistan has to be stopped.

Re: Mumbai style terror attacks alert in Europe and USA

The threat is constant. If the terrorists really intended to blow a particular part of Europe/US, I doubt the information would have leaked.
But of course, its better to be paranoid and be safe than be sorry. Every citizen should be looking out for trouble and inform the respective authorities the moment they suspect something unusual. That could be our best bet.

On a side note, I dont think the terrorists even know that there is a country called Canada. Even if they did, probably its way too cold for the dessert oriented terrorists. Good for me.

Dude, what are you talking about? The common man can't tell the difference between an apple and an orange. Let alone what is and is not a terrorist. The Oklahoma bomber drove around downtown Oklahoma City in a huge rental truck with the cabin full of smoke, parked it in front of the federal building, in traffic, and no one even noticed! Law enforcement and intelligence gathering organizations are the first and most important responsible for this.
For arguments sake, even if citizens start spying on each other, you can't stop something till it's being executed if you rely on citizens.
These attacks, by and large, are being done my Muslims in Pakistan funded by Saudis. It's time to put a stop to it.

Terrorism is like a phenomena now, any such thing can occur any where in the world, beer to remain conscious about this threat. Canadian forces were part of NATO forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, so terrorist do know about Canada.

yes largely the common man cannot identify a bomb or terrorist.
in our country, even a good samaritan hesitates to help a man dying on the road because of the 'hassles' involved. in western countries, people approach the authorities without hesitation. they believe in the the system.
that may not make all the difference but its a huge one.

US may issue warning on public places in Europe

WASHINGTON – The Associated Press has learned the Obama administration is considering a broad warning for U.S. citizens to avoid public places in Europe due to new al-Qaida threats.

Such a move could have significant implications for European tourism.
U.S. officials told the AP on Saturday that the State Department may issue a travel warning as early as Sunday advising Americans to stay away from European tourist sites, transportation hubs and other facilities airport for Europe because of new threat information.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declined to comment on the matter. But he said the administration remains focused on al-Qaida threats to U.S. interests and will take appropriate steps to protect Americans.

Terror Alerts Upgraded Across Europe


Britons travelling to France and Germany have been told they may face a high threat from terror attacks, following a US warning for its citizens to be vigilant while in Europe.

Americans living in or visiting Europe have been told to take more security precautions. This advice is one step below the formal warning recommending no travel at all.

Following the US move, Britain upgraded its travel advice for Europe.
The Foreign Office said there was a "high threat" of attacks in countries including France and Germany, rather than the "general threat" previously identified.

It follows intelligence indicating al Qaeda terrorists are planning to launch simultaneous Mumbai-style attacks in the UK, France and Germany.

"Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests," the US State Department said in its alert.
"US citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.
