Germany shuts down shopping mall over attack threat

Germany shuts down shopping mall over attack threat“The shopping centre will be closed all Saturday due to security concerns. This is a major operation,” a spokesman told AFP, indicating the lockdown that included the 200-store Limbecker Platz in downtown Essen, nearby parking garages and an underground rail station all locked down in security cordon. Germany is on high alert following the Christmas market carnage in Berlin last December, in which an Islamic State jihadist rammed a truck into a crowd of pedestrians, killing 12 people.
