Germany is increasing security at airports and railway stations in light of “concrete indications” of terrorist attacks being planned for the end of November. (continued below the fold)

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said it followed a tip-off from another, unnamed country.

Germany had information on “sustained efforts” by Islamist extremists to carry out attacks, he said.

He said the extra security would remain in place “until further notice”.

“There are grounds for concern, but not for hysteria,” Mr de Maiziere told a news conference in Berlin.

The federal police force has been ordered to step up checks at airports and train stations, he added.

You’ve lost that dismissive feeling:

The BBC’s Stephen Evans, in Berlin, says a month ago, Germany was dismissive of American warnings of attacks. That feeling has now gone.
