Germany: Essen mall to stay closed after attack threat


Berlin, Mar 11: Police have ordered a shopping mall in the western German city of Essen not to open after receiving credible tips of an imminent attack.


The shopping center and the adjacent parking lot stayed closed on Saturday morning as over a hundred police officers searched the compound.

Authorities in Essen reportedly said the centre in Limbecker Platz was closed for 'security reasons'.

A spokesperson for the North Rhine Westphalia Police said they have concrete indications of a possible attack.

The German news agency dpa reported that the downtown mall, one of the biggest in the region, would be closed for the entire day. Police in Essen could not immediately be reached for more details.
