Suspected al-Qaida members in Germany arrested; working on a bomb

KARLSRUHE, Germany -Three suspected al-Qaida members were working on a shrapnel-laden bomb in Germany to attack a crowded place such as a bus — a plot showing Europe faces a terror threat, officials said Saturday.

Law officials said the trio, arrested Friday after being under surveillance for months, hadn’t picked a target, but were experimenting with explosives and detonators.

The suspects are a Moroccan, a German with Moroccan citizenship, and a German with Iranian citizenship.
