Terrorists planned to attack NATO headquarters AFP Hamburg (Germany) September 19

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Arab terrorists were planning an attack against NATO's Brussels headquarters similar to last week's strikes on US targets, Germany's Stern weekly magazine said Tuesday quoting a report by Germany's Federal Crime Office (BKA). The magazine published an excerpt from a leaked confidential BKA report which said: "A group of unidentified Arab terrorists has been planning an attack against NATO headquarters on October 1 since the middle of September."

The BKA report, dated September 16 also said that NATO viewed the idea of an attack similar to the September 11 Kamikaze attacks in New York and Washington to be "probable"

No BKA spokesman was available for comment on the report.
