Munich Police Warn of Imminent Terror Attack, Evacuate Train Stations
Berlin obtained information regarding possible terrorist attacks in Germany on New Year's Eve from the Turkish security service, according to the newspaper Hurriyet.

Earlier, it was reported that a number of European capitals received warnings from intelligence agencies about potential terrorist attacks before the end of 2015.

It was noted that those carrying out the attacks may use firearms and explosives.

Hurriyet quoted Turkish intelligence officials as saying that at least five Daesh terrorists with fake passports had entered the territory of the European Union, where they planned to carry out simultaneous attacks on New Year's Eve.

According to Hurriyet, the attacks were due to be staged in churches located in various European cities as well as on major sites for public leisure and entertainment activities.
