Official: Germans, Brits behind Europe terror plot

ISLAMABAD (AP) - A Pakistani intelligence official says eight Germans and two British brothers are behind a recent terror plot against European cities, and one of the Britons died in a recent CIA missile strike.

The official says Pakistan, Britain and Germany are tracking the suspects and their calls to Europe as they plan logistics.
But he says the plots are not an imminent threat.

The official spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information to the media.
He says the suspects are hiding in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region, where the U.S. has focused many of its recent drone missile strikes.

He identified the dead Briton as Abdul Jabbar, originally from Pakistan's Jhelum district. He said Jabbar died in a Sept. 8 U.S. missile strike.
