US tip-off foiled German bomb plot, reports say

A tip-off from US intelligence helped to foil the terror bomb plot in Germany, it emerged yesterday. “The first piece of hard evidence on the bomb plot against American military and airbases in Germany was transmitted to the German authorities from American intelligence officials,” Rolf Tophoven, director of the German institute for terrorist research and security policy, said.

According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the US officials gave the Germans internet IP addresses – numbers that can help to locate a computer – and parts of names.
