Afghanistan: 8 German killed while receiving terrorist training

AOL News:

A U.S. missile killed five German militants taking shelter in a house in northwest Pakistan on Monday, intelligence officials said.

The attack hit a house in North Waziristan. That region has been named as the source of a European terror plot that has prompted American authorities to issue a travel advisory. One or more German citizens are reported to be linked to the plot.

The missile strike took place in the town of Mir Ali, a known hub for foreign militants with links to al-Qaida.

Two officers said the five victims were believed to be German citizens in the region for terrorist training.

While afterwards the numbers of terrorists killed increased, at first, it was reported that there were 8 terrorists killed, while 5 are German. But later it has been reported that all 8 were German nationals and that it was them who sparked the terror alert in Europe.
