The militia had the logistics "to carry out wide-scale attacks on physical and human targets," the weekly said in a report released ahead of publication.

Focus pointed to the case of a 29-year-old medical student at Germany's Goettingen University, who was detained in Israel last month.
It reported the man was suspected of making contact with Hezbollah supporters in Germany and of having received $20,000 (13,333 euros) for espionage work.
