Germany: Namibia airport package was security test

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) - Germany's top security official says a suspicious package found in a Namibian airport near bags bound for Munich was designed to test airport security - but they don't know who did the test.

The official said that German experts sent to the Windhoek airport after the Wednesday incident had inspected the bag and determined it was a case made by an American firm to test airport security measures.

The official did not say who may have left the case in the luggage hall, adding only that German agents were still investigating.

The threat came amid heightened concerns of terrorist threats against Germany that prompted Germany to raise its threat level even before the Windhoek incident.
