German open-air concert suspended over terrorism threat -police

BERLIN, June 2 (Reuters) - German police temporarily stopped an open-air weekend concert at Nuerburgring race track on Friday due to a possible terrorist threat.

“Due to a terror danger situation, we told the organiser to temporarily stop the concert as a precaution,” police in the nearby town of Koblenz said in a statement.

Der Spiegel magazine said that all those attending the concert were asked to leave the concert grounds to nearby camping grounds “in a controlled and orderly fashion.”
