Police: Munich train stations threatened with suicide attack

A suspected terrorist plot that provoked authorities to evacuate Munich's main train station was an intended suicide attack, city police chief Hubertus Andrae says.

Some 550 police have been mobilized in the Bavarian capital.

Concerns were easing early Friday, after the crisis had peaked shortly before midnight, Andrae says.

Authorities were evaluating when to restore rail traffic at the main train station and another in the city's Pasing district, which were closed in response to specific threat information, he says.
