BERLIN, January 8. /TASS/. Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere believes it would be wrong to completely rule out the risk of a terrorist attack similar to what happened at the office of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in neighbouring France last Wednesday.
“We have been doing all what we can,” de Maiziere said. “However, even very good policing is unable to stop such an attack. Its risk in Germany cannot be ruled out.”
He said German law enforcers had a clear action plan to be used in case of such attacks and they were prepared to take all necessary measures. De Maiziere added, though, that it would be just silly to openly discuss specific precautions the security forces were taking.
De Maizier believes that the gunmen who staged a massacre at the Charlie Hebdo office were acting very professionally. This mode of organizing terrorist attacks is very characteristic of Al-Qaeda, he said.
On January 11 De Maizier would meet with his French counterpart Bernard Cazeneuve to discuss the struggle against terrorism.
Last Wednesday three men armed with automatic rifles attacked the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which earlier published caricature images of the Prophet Muhammed. The raid left 12 dead and 11 injured.
