NPR's Dina Temple-Raston has been following up on the reports out of Europe this morning about potential terror attacks there. There has been some reporting that the uptick in drone attacks in the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan was an attempt to foil a series of possible terrorist attacks in Europe. But NPR has learned that that may not be the case. Officials say that the uptick in drone attacks is coincidental – based on intelligence and information unrelated to the possible attacks. Officials said it is unclear exactly what kind of attacks were planned and which countries were in the crosshairs, though officials mentioned the UK, France, and Germany as possible targets. One official familiar with the threat said some of the intelligence gleaned about the plot may have come from a suspected German terrorist who is now being held at Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan.
