A senior German official said that Iranian leaders have meanwhile voiced concern that there might be plots to attack their national football side during the World Cup in Germany.
Bavaria’s interior minister Günter Beckstein said that Germany’s Interior minister has been informed of Iranian concerns.
Mr. Beckstein who was talking to a German newspaper didn’t tell who maybe beyond attacks but reports quote him saying that Iranian opposition groups including MKO, which is on EU’s terror list, maybe plotting for terrorist attacks.
Iran’s concerns are expressed at a time when the ministers of 16 states of Germany are going to hold a meeting on coordination of security measures.
Steinbeck says the world cup matches could be target for terrorist attacks because of its popularity.
