Shopping mall in Germany closed over fears of imminent terror attack

Shopping mall in Germany closed over fears of imminent terror attack

The shopping center and the adjacent parking lot stayed closed as about a hundred police officers positioned themselves around the compound to make sure nobody could enter the mall.

Police ordered a shopping mall in the western German city of Essen not to open Saturday after receiving credible tips of an imminent attack. "The police have concrete evidence about a possible attack", the police said on Facebook. Reports said police officers, many armed with machine pistols and bullet-proof vests, had even forced out early morning staff.

Several people were seriously injured during the incident at the city's main train station. "The police have concrete indications of a possible attack".

The spokesman added: "In order to avoid possible danger to visitors, they will not be able to enter the shopping halls or the vehicle park". The apartment search is directly related to the mall threat, police spokesperson Peter Elke told German broadcaster NTV.
