Merkel: U.S. Helped Us Foil a Terror Attack


German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday that U.S. intelligence helped foil a terrorist attack in Germany in 2007.

In an interview with the local RTL network, Merkel said that, thanks to information provided by the U.S., her country was able to detain four Islamists who were carrying explosives weighing 400 kg (881 pounds). She added that Germany depends heavily on its cooperation with the U.S. intelligence services.
