Berlin: Germany`s political parties are holding final rallies for national elections after Islamic militants warned of retribution for the country`s presence in Afghanistan.
Germany holds national elections on Sunday and Chancellor Angela Merkel hopes to be returned for a second term in office. The election campaign has seen the role of German troops in Afghanistan brought to the forefront after al Qaeda messages decried their presence.

The government has tried to calm down citizens, saying there has been no specific terror threat, and Merkel says security authorities are prepared to protect the country.
