Germany Warns Of 'Increase' In Islamic State Suicide Bombers Entering Kabul

By Mary Ellen Cagnassola

Germany's top military commander told reporters Tuesday that the military is concerned about an apparent threat of attacks by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Kabul, Afghanistan, the Associated Press reported.

General Eberhard Zorn said that "the threat has further increased," adding that American and German intelligence indicates an increase of ISIS suicide bombers sneaking into the city.

"That's increasing and leads to heightened precautions," Zorn added.

Germany's defense minister, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, warned that the Taliban's August 31 deadline for foreign troops to fully withdraw should be taken "seriously."

"I think one needs to take very, very seriously the announcement that they won't agree to a further delay," she said, adding that the Taliban could be using the deadline as a bargaining chip in negotiations with foreign officials.
