German train evacuated over terrorism scare
Berlin: German police say 250 passengers were evacuated from a high speed train as authorities feared a possible terror attack.
Stuttgart Federal Police spokesman Steffen Zaiser said on Friday there was "sufficient threatening evidence" to fear an attack on the train from Berlin, bound for Interlaken, Switzerland.
He said police and sniffer dogs searched the entire Inter City Express train near the southwestern city of Freiburg around midday, but did not find explosives or any other dangerous material.
Zaiser declined to elaborate on the reasons for the search, citing the ongoing investigation. The DAPD news agency cited a police source as saying that a CD-ROM found on the train pointed to an Islamic terrorist link.
