Unknown suspects attack with explosive on German newspaper that reprinted Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W).
According to the police sources, no one hurt in this attack.
Earlier, German police warn of security gaps after French attacks. While German intelligence listed the Charlie Hebdo attackers as radical Islamists, no direct link between the French attacks and Germany has been found. But police unions are calling for more powers to combat terrorism.
Representatives of Germany’s police force on Saturday called for better financing to help protect German citizens from terrorism.
Arnold Plickert, deputy head of the German police union GdP, told public broadcaster Deutschlandfunk that to combat the dangers posed by terrorists, police needed not just more personnel but also more powers. He added that funding for domestic security had been reduced to almost nothing in recent years.
The head of the DPolG police union, Rainer Wendt, told television station n-tv that there were large gaps in aviation security and airport control procedures.
Both unions also called for increased powers to store telephone and Internet data as part of efforts to fight crime, something already advocated Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union and its Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union, but opposed by coalition partner, the Social Democrats.
