On the eve of the third anniversary of the terror attacks in New York on Sept. 11th, the German Police Union (GdP) warned that insufficient measures have been taken to prevent a similar attack in Germany. According to Konrad Freiberg, head of the GdP, there are significant problems in Germany's security net. "Potential suicide attackers are walking around free," he said. Freiberg criticized the government, claiming that not enough has been done to provide the German police force with the resources to combat terrorism. On Friday, a spokesperson for the federal government in Berlin said there were no signs that terrorists were planning an imminent attack in Germany and described the police union's criticism as "lacking substance."
